Mark Bannerman, January 19- February 20, 2015
From across the gallery you will see familiar scenes of life in Columbus County or beautiful fish from Carolina streams. But as you step closer, you will discover Mark’s incredible collaged surfaces. Each piece is rich with myriad found objects that add depth and texture to his paintings. Mark’s own careeer is a collage of graphic design, studio art, unique commissions, and education. For 30 years, Bannerman shared his artistic talent as a teacher in Whiteville High School inspiring numerous students early in their careers. Join Southeastern in greeting one of Whiteville’s noted artists, or say hello to a mentor who nurtured your own creativity throughout your high school years.
