Paul Hartley - The Man and His Legacy


March 25 - April 25, 2010

Paul Hartley was a former art teacher at East Carolina University, Greenville, North Carolina. The Exhibition will feature his former students. Irene displayed three paintings in this show.

LEFT:  As you walk into Paul Hartley’s office, you find it welcoming. He looks up, takes his glasses off and asks how you are. The figure behind him is a self- portrait. It is a stuffed torso with real shoes all wrapped in saran wrap. I always loved what the memorabilia surrounding him told about the person.
