Charleston Co. Public Library in Charleston, SC, Offers Work by Bob Doster

The Charleston County Public Library System in Charleston, SC, will present an exhibit of sculptures by Lancaster, SC, artist Bob Doster, on view in the Saul Alexander Foundation Gallery, at the Main Branch in downtown Charleston, from Mar. 1 - 31, 2014.

Doster has been creating sculpture for more than fifty years and his works can be found in museums, galleries, and collections worldwide. New works on exhibit in Charleston are part of a “Winds of Time” series, inspired by the landscape of the south. It is the artist’s intent to recreate the emotions evoked by the endlessly churning waves on the coast, balanced by the winds received from the Appalachians. The sturdy, solid organic steel proves to be indestructible, much like the spirit of those living in the south – solid and unbending, even with the changes of time.

Doster has been providing artwork/educational programs/arts resources to individuals, non-profit and governmental organizations, schools and corporations for more than thirty years. Because of these efforts, Doster received the Elizabeth Verner O’Neill Award - Governor Award, the highest honor an artist can be given by the State of South Carolina for Arts in Education.

The Saul Alexander Foundation Gallery serves as an avenue for the respectful exchange of artistic and conceptual ideas within a diverse constituency, to reflect the varied experiences and viewpoints of the people of SC. Artists are selected solely on the basis of the quality of their work.
