Creative Loafing “Best of Charlotte 2016” announces Charles Williams’ Continuum exhibition Best Use of Art as a Form of Therapy:
Greensboro-based artist Charles Williams has had three near-death experiences, all of them involving water. Luckily, he turned his bad experiences into a good thing through his Continuum series, which showcased at CPCC’s Ross Gallery during this year’s Sensoria and also at New Gallery of Modern Art in Uptown. Williams has acknowledged his fears of water and accepted that he can’t swim, although his ability to paint water and ocean scenes has been a success. As he said in an interview earlier this year: “When I feel like I don’t want to paint water anymore, then that’s when I’ll take swimming lessons.” We suggest you keep splashing that paint onto canvasses, Charles.
