Exhibition | Craig Crawford

Oct 28, 2017 — Jan 21, 2018

Craig Crawford (born 1964) attended the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of South Carolina. After graduation, he moved to Washington, DC, where he apprenticed with conservator Charles Olin, former head of Painting Conservation at the Smithsonian Museum and the National Portrait Gallery. Crawford became an associate conservator, specializing in American landscape and French Barbizon works. Crawford later returned to South Carolina and opened his own conservation practice, an ongoing concern.

Moody and evocative, Crawford's psychologically charged paintings explore his deep-rooted emotional response to his surroundings in the South Carolina midlands.
