The Music Library is excited to be hosting an exhibit of works from Trenholm Artsts Guild member Dr. Don Bishop. Dr. Bishop was educated at North Greenville University, Furman University, and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and has retired after forty years as a Senior Pastor.
He studied and taught stained glass for years before beginning his journey into abstract painting. In his Artist’s Statement Dr. Bishop writes, “I seek to capture a small glimpse of the beauty of nature that has been given as a gift to mankind through our Creator. Art is all around us to be enjoyed and admired. What a joy to become a partner with our wonderful world.” He has further evolved into an “environment abstract painter,” seeking to “transpose environmental images and themes” using the natural world around him as inspiration.
Dr. Bishop’s works have won awards in the Seven Oaks shows and in the Fine Arts Division of the SC Fair as well as having been exhibited in galleries in Cayce and Aiken, SC.
