Return of the Wanderer: Recent Works by Boyd Saunders
February 12, 2011 - April 10, 2011
This exhibition highlighted the work of painter, illustrator, printmaker, and sculptor, Boyd Saunders, the distinguished professor emeritus of art at the University of South Carolina. A native Tennessean, his work reflects his lifelong interest in storytelling. Saunders’s art has carried the story of the South all over the world and has been the subject of numerous one-man shows in the United States, Italy, the Netherlands, and China. In addition, his work has received many awards and is represented in public, private, and corporate collections throughout the United States. In 1989, he created a limited, deluxe edition of William Faulkner’s short story Spotted Horses, illustrated with thirty-four of his own original lithographs, which was published to great acclaim by the University of South Carolina Press. He has twice been the featured artist, as well as the keynote speaker, at the annual International Faulkner Conference.
