Sun + Light


CHARLES WILLIAMS, AMERICAN DREAM, 2017, MIXED MEDIA

SUN + LIGHT is a collection of works from the series Everyone Loves the Sunshine by contemporary visual artist Charles Williams. Captured through emotionally charged and compelling imagery, works featured in this exhibition juxtapose Williams' own personal encounters, past and present, with the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's. In doing so, he attempts to strike a balance between both the peaceful and violent protests of the movement and of varied expressions of power.

Williams work has been exhibited nationally and has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions including the Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum (Myrtle Beach, SC), Weatherspoon Art Museum (Greensboro, NC), and Mint Museum of Art (Charlotte, NC). Mr. Williams holds a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA from the University of North Carolina.
