The April art exhibit will feature the works of local artist Henry Wyche, in conjunction with the naming of the gallery in his honor, “Wyche Gallery.” The exhibit will be displayed from March 31 through May 9. Two of his paintings, “Best in Show” and “Tree and Wagon on Road,” will be available as prints through the SCC Foundation.
About the Artist
Henry Wyche is a beloved artist from Hallsboro, North Carolina. He began painting in his home studio in 1960. His daughter describes how he would return home from his day at Waccamaw Bank and would spend most of his evening and weekend hours at his easel. This exhibit has been provided by the Wyche family, and features Henry's wide range of subjects including self-portraits, trains, images from the News Reporter, travels in France, and eastern North Carolina landscapes.
Mr. Wyche served SCC as the first chairman of the Board of Trustees from the inception of the college in 1964 and remained a member of the board until 1970. He was an earnest advocate for the college for over twenty-five years. Through his various roles in the community, Wyche is known for his career at Waccamaw Bank and Trust, his public
service, and also as a fine artist. Mr. Wyche exhibited in numerous local shows, as well as Campbell University and the North Carolina Museum of Art, and his work hangs in many
private collections in the region.
