Inspiration is Free: William Halsey in Charleston

Red Room
By William Halsey (American, 1915 – 1999)
On view in A Visual Legacy: the Halsey-McCallum Collection

This one goes out to my friends in Charleston. Longtime readers know that I'm an enthusiastic fan of South Carolina-born mid-20th-century Abstract Expressionist, William Halsey. Well tonight, Friday, September 24 at 6 p.m., Angela Mack, executive director of the Gibbes Museum, is giving a free lecture in conjunction with the exhibition A Visual Legacy: the Halsey-McCallum Collection at the College of Charleston. The show opens this evening, exploring the career of pioneering Halsey as well as the work of his wife, artist-educator Corrie Parker McCallum. Click here to learn more.
