One to Know: William McLure X Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery: Solo Exhibition Feb. 7th-Mar. 7th
Who isn’t enamored with the allure of William McLure lately? Artist turned interior designer or interior designer turned artist, whichever moniker you want to call him shouldn’t really matter when the lines between the two are so blurred in William’s world, both go hand in hand. His art and interiors have always stopped me in my Instagram scrolling tracks and I was beyond excited to learn about his month long solo exhibition here in Charlotte at Anne Nielson Fine Art gallery opening tomorrow, so I can have the opportunity to see his work in person .
William began his interior designer career after being formerly trained at The Southern Institute of Design. However, his career as an artist and notoriety began when some of his work was seen in his personal home on Instagram. His artwork is characterized as a blend of abstract, realism and sketch work typically evoking a modern and eclectic feeling with a touch of masculinity thrown in. His large scale pieces always take my breath away as the furniture in the room tends to only play a supporting role to the statement making art piece.
Based out of Alabama, it is an honor to have him in the Queen city for this exhibition which is sure to sell out. You can read more about his work and aesthetic here. I hope to see you there!
