Work by William Halsey

Meet in front of The Salon near the front door at 11am and join us for a free tour of “William Halsey: Full Fathom Flotsam”. Don’t miss this opportunity to delve deeper into these colorful and expressive works that will have you looking at Charleston in a whole new way.

Inspired by his native Charleston’s timeworn and weathered buildings, noted artist and educator William Halsey replicated the centuries-old façades by sculpting discarded fragments variously into elegantly sparse bas reliefs encrusted with layers of paint and debris, making his most advanced contributions to late 20th-century American art. “William Halsey: Full Fathom Flotsam”, conceived in honor of the centennial of the artist’s birth year, brings together the largest group of Halsey’s assemblages ever exhibited.

The GCMA has produced a catalog to accompany this exhibition; this hardcover book is available in The Salon, a gift shop unlike any other.
