Charles Williams

May 26, 2017 - June 10, 2017

Informed by social consciousness, Charles Williams creates landscapes and figurative works based on personal experience and his interest in human emotion and the natural world. Williams' recent works draw inspiration from historical photography of the Civil Rights movement, and through the use of color and gesture offer a contemporary response to social and political issues of the past and present.

Williams received his BFA from SCAD in 2006 and will earn his MFA from UNC-Greensboro this spring. Solo exhibitions of his work have been shown at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC, and Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, SC. His paintings have also been included in numerous group exhibitions, including the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, NC, and the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC.

During his two-week residency at the Gibbes Museum, Williams invites the public to collaborate on a new series of paintings entitled Child's Play.

Open studio hours: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays: 1 - 4pm, Wednesdays, 5 - 8pm; Saturdays, 10am - 12noon.
