About the Artists

The exhibiting artists met at the College of Charleston, where John is a Professor of Drawing and Painting. Lydia is a recent graduate of this program, and is making her foray into the world of art post-Bachelors degree.

Lydia Campbell

Lydia Campbell is a recent graduate from the College of Charleston with a BA in Studio Art.

Her photorealistic drawings and watercolor paintings explore figurative youth and personal relationships within contemporary American lifestyle.

She is currently working on a series of drawings on paper that examine the realistic and imagined physical identity and the space it might occupy; and on a second series of watercolors on paper that document physical locations/destinations and the people or materials that relate to them.

Lydia is based in the Lowcountry, but plans to move to Martha’s Vineyard in 2018. She is represented by The Southern gallery.

Learn more about Lydia.

John Hull

John Hull is well-known for his snapshot paintings of groups people engaged in the periphery of sporting events and other community-based scenes. His paintings on view deviate from his traditional subject matter and focus on walks on Sullivan’s Island taken with his dog, Forrest.

He has been exhibiting internationally since 1981, and his work may be found in public collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum. He has received numerous awards, including four National Endowment for the Arts Visual Arts Fellowships, and several others.

He is currently Professor of Painting at Drawing at the College of Charleston, and is represented by the Corrigan Gallery.
