b. 1950


Hal Bryant’s works are found in collections throughout the Carolinas. He has participated in many juried and museum exhibits, and has won many awards for his watercolor, pastel and acrylic works during his artistic career. Since 1972, he has placed over three hundred paintings in private, business, and corporate collections.

Bryant’s subject matter ranges from realistically rendering the interiors and exteriors of structures in acrylic and watercolor, to interpreting the beauty of the natural landscape impressionistically in pastel. In recent years he has been working also in digital photography, and has participated in several exhibits with those photo prints.

From 1992-1994, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of moving and restoring a historic log cabin which is now in the woods below his home. It is used as a summer studio.

Bryant is a native of South Carolina, and has a B.A. from Gardner-Webb University and a M.A. in Art Studio from the University of South Carolina. He was on the faculty of Cleveland Community College in Shelby from 1975 - 2007, teaching drawing, painting, digital photography, and art appreciation in the college transfer division. He retired in 2007 and now teaches there in an adjunct position.
