Artist On Campus Pilot Potpourri Between October 25 and No vember 3, a one-man art show by a Gardner-Webb student, Hal Bryant, could have been viewed in the O. Max Gardner Lounge. Hal Bryant is a senior from Greenville, S. C., majoring in so cial science, since Gardner-Webb does not offer a degree in art. As a senior at Greenville Senior High School, Bryant became interested in art; therefore, he enrolled in an art course. This particular course resulted in Bryant’s deci sion to make painting his hobby. Bryant’s first painting, a clock, introduced him to watercolors, which has remained one of his favorite materials. He enjoyed do ing several watercolors this past summer. Bryant uses mostly poly- meracrylic, which is like oil but is water based. Bryant stated that he paints directly onto a gessoed Masonite hardboard.

Bryant has sold many of his paintings, and remarks that it helps out by providing spending “I don’t want my education to be completely oriented in one field as it would have been had I gone to an art school,” said Bryant. "I think I have done better work by developing my own style and through the help given me by my professor, Mr. James Rash”.
