The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library’s Morris Gallery will host an exhibit of the art of South Carolina’s Alvin Glen starting January 2, 2019. A free public reception for the artist will be held on Sunday, January 27, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
Mr. Glen presents works about common people, emotions, and ideas. He uses recognizable images, sometimes subtle, allowing the viewers to slowly discover and interpret the works. He explores emotion, social and spiritual concepts. Some of his works illustrate low country Gullah life. Some of his works bring attention to social or political issues.
Mr. Glen earned a bachelor of arts in arts education at South Carolina State College. He has continued his study at Furman University, Winthrop College and at FACETs in Orangeburg, SC. He has presented solo shows at the Charleston Art Institute, the Avery Research Center, and at the Charleston Trident Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Glen’s exhibit will run through March 15, 2019 and is sponsored by Friends of Florence County Library.
