Pop-up arts shows coming thanks to Richland Library

Richland Library is hosting its first pop-up art show of the season at Richland Library Sandhills on April 16 at 11 a.m.

Richland Library’s Pop Up Art Shows aim to highlight the work of local, emerging visual artists and their unique personal ties to the specific communities where our libraries are located. Stop in (763 Fashion Dr., Columbia, 29229) to meet Bradley Williams and Ashlan Bishop, browse the art or make a purchase.

Bradley Williams is an artist living in Camden who has been painting and drawing since he can remember. Williams paints life as a visual journal and is currently working on a series of paintings inspired by his time living and working in Yellowstone National Park.

Ashlan Bishop is a South Carolina native fiber artist with a focus on needle-felted wool art pieces. Affectionately known around town as “the ghost lady,” Bishop’s needle-felted wool art allows folks to keep the spirit of Halloween going all year.

The April 16 pop-up art show is the first of the Spring exhibition series and will be followed by two additional opportunities to view the works of South Carolina artists on:

  • May 5 | First Thursday on Main (Boyd Plaza)
  • June 18 | Richland Library Main branch (1431 Assembly St.)
