In January, the Seabrook Island Artist Guild will showcase one of its long-time and most active members, Artist of the Month Walter Czander.
Czander’s passion for art started in high school and was nurtured by Margaret Sullivan, a renowned artist and instructor. After a career in engineering that focused on the planning, concept and design of buildings for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, he retired to Seabrook and pursued his dream of becoming an artist.
Czander paints a variety of subjects in oils, acrylics and watercolors. His approach is to study paintings by renowned artists such as Turner, Homer and Manet and incorporate some of their styles in his paintings of the Lowcountry.
As a member of the Artist Guild since 2007, Czander has organized and directed the hanging of the art displays at the Lake House and the classes taught by fellow guild members.
His paintings will be on display in the front hall of the Lake House during the month of January.
