Artist On Campus
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
As one views Bryant’s paintings,
one may conclude that Bryant
probably is partial to landscapes
and farm scences, since the ma

conservationalist artist. Bryant
feels that any form of painting
quality is based on its ability to
present the artist’s intentions;
therefore, an abstract painting can
be of excellent quality even though
Bryant usually paints realistic pic-
Bryant feels that the American
public will gradually see the art
styles returning to realism and
religious art forms.
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”.
