Carolinians not only enjoy art; they're famous for their high-quality productions. It's a time-honored source of pride, dating to the era when Dave the Slave produced his remarkable Edgefield pots (above). Modern-day pottery (far right) comes from artisans like Billy Henson of Blue Ridge. Sculptors like Grainger McKoy produce awesome works in various media ("Sparrow Hawk," right center).

Frame art daily comes from hundreds of artists practicing in different media. Examples: Mary Edna Fraser's "Chesapeake Bay" aerial art (above center) and Jonathan Green's "White Breeze" (this column, below).

One of the world's finest religious art collections is housed at Bob Jones University in Greenville. The example at bottom right is Il Sodoma's "Procession to Calvary."
