The Cheryl Newby Gallery in Pawleys Island, SC, Features Works by Charles Williams

An exhibition of fifteen paintings by Charles Williams is on view at The Cheryl Newby Gallery in Pawleys Island, SC, through July 16, 2011. This one-man show, Southern Exposure – Paintings by Charles Williams, will introduce Williams as the most recent artist to join the gallery.

A 2006 graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, in 2009 Williams joined a very select group of artists from across America when he was awarded a Hudson River Fellowship to study at The Grand Central Academy of Art in New York. There he received instruction and mentoring from highly regarded contemporary realist painters Jacob Collins and Edward Minoff among others. His paintings have been exhibited in Tampa, Atlanta, and Charleston, SC, where he resides.

Williams grew up in coastal Georgetown County, SC, and from an early age felt an intense reverence for the natural beauty of the land and waterways. He now paints full time and is known to declare that he “loves, lives, and breathes art”.

“His genuine enthusiasm for what he does, not to mention his incredible talent, caught my attention,” said Cheryl Newby.

At twenty seven years old, Williams is the youngest artist represented by the gallery. Established in 1983, the gallery represents thirteen well-known and emerging artists. Williams is the first Georgetown native to be represented by the gallery.
