The Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Chris Hartwick

The Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville in Greenville, SC, will present the exhibit, Songs from Psalms, featuring works by Chris Hartwick, on view from June 1 - 30, 2010.

Greenville artist, Chris Hartwick, has been painting and drawing for most of his life. Mostly self-taught, he received his BS degree in graphic arts from Bob Jones University in 1993. Some of his teachers included Carl Blair, Darrel Koons, and Emory Bopp.

Hartwick has unique ways of creating his artwork. Born with Arthrogryposis, a rare muscular disease, he is unable to use his hands like others. Instead, he has honed his artistic ability by using his mouth for studio work and feet for digital design.

Hartwick's show is entitled, Songs from Psalms. After reading the book of Psalms several times he began to pick out words and phrases which caught his eye. There are several new pieces ranging from realism to design using a broad spectrum of media. Hartwick decided to try his hand (mouth) at paper sculpture, and for some pieces this was a real challenge. How many people do you know who can take an X-acto blade and cut straight lines using their mouth? Hartwick wanted to challenge himself and try something new.

The Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville is a co-operative gallery located in the heart of Greenville, SC. Over twenty local artists are represented in the gallery along with various mediums including acrylic, mixed media, oil and watercolor paintings, jewelry, glass, woodwork and sculpture. One or more of the artists is in the gallery at all times, demonstrating throughout the day and always ready to discuss their art with visitors.
