A Drew Brophy Retrospective
"I'm honored to announce that I have been chosen to be The Myrtle Beach Art Museum's featured artist of 2018. I am happy to be able to exhibit over 30 years of my work in a museum, showing the progression of an art career from the start to now. My intention is that this exhibit will inspire and encourage other artists by showing them what is possible.
Preparing for an exhibit of this size is a huge task. Original paintings, sketches and surfboard paintings, ranging from my high school years to the present, will be displayed in a space of over 1700 square feet and in 7 different "gallery" rooms.
I'm gathering over 70 pieces of art from collectors all over the country, most of which sold a long time ago. It feels surreal, going through all of my old sketches and works. Luckily, I saved almost everything going back to my high school days.
In the early days, my art wasn't even that good. In the Retrospective exhibit, people will be able to see the progression of my work as they walk from room to room - all 7 rooms will represent a place in time.
If you're near South Carolina this summer, consider coming to the exhibit. Maria and I will be there the first 2 weeks, giving personal tours and a Posca Paint Pen Workshop."
