Paintings on Display at the Darlington Library

The non-representational painting of Dr. Hiller Spires will be on display in the Allard A. Alston Conference Room at the Darlington Library through the end of November.

Spires, a professor at N.C. State University and Darlington County native, has ten works on display. In these works, Spires explores the emotion of color, texture and shape. Spires has this to say about her work, "Art is an exploration of emotion. I use color to explore feelings such as joy, sadness, peacefulness, anger, and exhilaration. I'm particularly drawn to juxtaposing orange and blue, which to me signal energy and serenity."

These paintings are on display through a partnership between Black Creek Arts Council and the Darlington Library.

The mission of Black Creek Arts Council is to promote and foster the Arts in Darlington County. BCAC’s offices are housed in a state of the art 10,000 square foot facility at 116 West College Avenue in Hartsville, SC. BCAC offers a variety of programs including art classes of all styles, after-school activities, pre-school aged programs, private music lessons, and various types of gallery exhibits. BCAC also offers assistance with arts management, funding, education, and program coordination to arts and cultural organizations in Darlington County.
