Hampton III Gallery in Taylors, SC, just outside of Greenville, SC, will host a Coffee and Conversation with David Halsey, on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 11am – noon, about Charleston, SC, artist William Halsey (1915-1999), who has work on exhibit at the gallery through Nov. 7, 2015.
In “The Charleston Renaissance”, a book written by Martha Severens, Halsey is placed as the bridge “between Charleston’s cultural renewal and the subsequent dawning of a new era for the arts across the state. …Halsey almost singlehandedly guarded the modernist flame for years here before the rest of the state was finally drawn to its light. For this alone we should be grateful, but there is one more thing- in the process he became one of the finest painters in the country,” said Tom Styron, introduction to catalog “William Halsey, 1999”.
