Waccamaw Library is delighted to host an extensive exhibit of oil paintings by Charles Glazer in January and February. The works will be displayed throughout the library for all to enjoy.
Mr. Glazer has practiced his art professionally for more than 50 years. At age 10, he was selected to enter an elite artist training program under master artist Joseph Fitzpatrick at the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh – the same class where Andy Warhol studied – which he attended for seven years. He also trained at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh while attending high school.
He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism at the Pennsylvania State University where he studied various media, including print, film, video and performance art. He recently retired from a successful career in corporate relations. During his career, Mr. Glazer leveraged his creative talent in many roles, working for two world-class advertising and public relations agencies, serving as editor and publisher of two magazines and managing the corporate relations departments of three Fortune 500 companies. In the course of his career, Mr. Glazer created countless award-winning advertising and promotional campaigns, brochures, newsletters, videos, films, commercials, billboards, annual reports, live shows and other creative communication media.
Now retired and residing in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Mr. Glazer has refocused his creative talent on oil painting that reflects the beautiful coastal and low-country ecology of the area. He does both commissioned and non-commissioned work. His art can be viewed at several Grand Strand galleries, gift shops and restaurants, including Brookgreen Gardens and Hobcaw Barony. He has been accepted into the South Carolina Artisans Center through a juried process.
