Dan McCaw will present, in conjunction with the Morris Whiteside Gallery of Hilton Head, a lecture and slide presentation on July 17 from 10am to 3pm at the Renaissance Hotel in Charleston. Attendance is $100 and reservations are available through Morris Whiteside.
McCaw comes from the romantic impressionist with soft figures presenting simple daily poses. Influenced by Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, Gustav Klimt and the Abstract Expressionists, McCaw frees himself from the literalness of life and paints the very human figure without the burden of detail. He was raised in Montana, attended the San Francisco Academy of Design and the Art Center of Design in Pasadena, California where he also taught.
The Sylvan Gallery specializes in 20th and 21st century representational art and carries a large selection of sculpture. They are pleased to represent the work of thirty or so artists of world renown including Rhett Thurman, Glenna Goodacre, Guido Petruzzi, Scott Burdick, Shirley Novak, Ted Ellis, Susan Lyon and Nancy Bush. The Sylvan Gallery can be reached at 843-722-2172, firstname.lastname@example.org or http://www.thesylvangallery.com. Gallery hours are 9:00-5:00 Monday thru Friday, 10:00-5:00 Saturday.
