J. Bardin is best admired for his abstract art. Indeed, he was one of the first South Carolinians to introduce the New York abstract movement to South Carolina in the 1950s. While a USC professor of art, Bardin became the first South Carolinian to win the prestigious Springs Art Show in 1961. He won it again in 1962 and 1963 before relinquishing the title to his student Warren Johnson, better known as Blue Sky.
The Hélène Berr, A Stolen Life, holocaust exhibit will be on display at Richland Library starting April 8, 2013.

We're pretty lucky to have such talented teens at the Richland Library. Sam D. not only helps the library by volunteering with the Teen Advisory Board, but he's a skilled artist as well! Inspired by the work of artist/illustrator Brandon Reese, Sam created his own take on Laughter and Raindrops. In addition to sharing his work with the library, Sam sent this piece to Mr. Reese himself. Brandon loved it so much that he sent Sam an autographed sketchbook- and we love it so much we couldn't wait to share it!
