SEWE artist Larry Seymour to lecture at The Citadel
The Citadel School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) educational partnership will host a free public demonstration and lecture by SEWE artist and Citadel alumnus Larry Seymour.
"We are delighted to welcome Larry both as an alumnus and an artist through our partnership with SEWE,” said Visiting Assistant Professor Tiffany Silverman, who is organizing the program with SEWE intern Cadet Kate Hardina. “Watching an artist transform a blank sheet of paper into a work of art is always a thrill.”
Seymour will speak at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 15 in Bond Hall Room 165 on The Citadel campus.
A 1969 graduate of The Citadel, Seymour earned a BS in biology. A member of Oscar Company, Seymour put his talents to work on the cadet newspaper, yearbook and magazine. Although he began as a portrait artist, Seymour turned to wildlife art and made two trips to Africa. He was voted South Carolina Wildlife Federation Artist of the Year in 1986, and has participated in SEWE for many years. Seymour works in both watercolor and graphite and has more than 50 limited edition prints.
Now in its 29th year, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition is the largest wildlife art and nature event in the nation, attracting around 40,000 visitors annually. This year’s expo is February 18-20.
