Last night there was an opening of a show at Hampton III Gallery, honoring the life & work of Jeanet Dreskin. Jeanet's history of spearheading art projects in Greenville, including but not limited to the formation of the Greenville County Museum of Art, are legendary. As one of her former students (I took printmaking classes from her in the early 1970's at the Museum School) I was invited to join other former students, Jim Campbell, Carrie Burns Brown, and Jo Carol Mitchell-Rogers, all accomplished artists and teachers in their own right, at this exhibition.
Jeanet was surprised by a birthday cake in celebration of her 96th birthday. She is still active and productive in her Greenville studio.
Here's my section of the show. It was an honor to be included in the festivities with Jeanet and all the other wonderful folks.
A few of my books were in the mix.
