6th annual African American History Month art exhibition coming to Greenville Technical College library

January 14, 2021

An art exhibition at the Greenville Technical College (GTC) library, in celebration of African American History Month, will be on display during the month of February. The library is located in the Beattie E. Huff Student Center, building 105, on the Barton Campus. Exhibition hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Masks are required, whether inside or outside, on all GTC campuses.

The show features the work of 13-year-old artist Josiah Hill. The Simpsonville native has been interested in drawing since the age of 3. At 7, he began attending the Art Haven, under the leadership of art coach Susan Wilson, exploring charcoal, graphite, watercolors, pastels, acrylics, and oils. He was first featured in the African American History Month Art Exhibition at GTC in 2018, the only child selected for participation. He received first place honors in the “Festival of Flowers” art exhibit in Greenwood, SC and was chosen to participate in the “ArtFields Jr. Contest” in Lake City, South Carolina. In addition, his work appeared on an album cover, and he was the featured artist in November 2020 at the Artist Guild Gallery in Greenville.
