Florence library to host exhibit of SC artist’s work
FLORENCE, S.C. – The Drs. Bruce & Lee Foundation Library’s Morris Gallery will host an exhibit of the art of South Carolina’s Alvin Glen starting Wednesday.
A free public reception for the artist will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27.
The exhibit will run through March 15 and is sponsored by Friends of Florence County Library.
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 as well as social and spiritual concepts. Some of his works illustrate Low Country Gullah life while other works bring attention to social or political issues.
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. He has presented solo shows at the Charleston Art Institute, the Avery Research Center and at the Charleston Trident Chamber of Commerce.
The Doctor N. Lee Morris Gallery is located on the second floor of the Drs. Bruce & Lee Foundation Library in Florence. For more information about the exhibit and related events, visit the library’s website at florencelibrary.org.
