NPOS 2022 Artists

Arnaud Bergerol Marcelle Bergerol, my grandmother, was a French painter who
brought to the canvas exceptional images of French country and city
life during the 1920s – 1950s. During her lifetime, she painted over
400 paintings, and many of the best of these will be offered at the
2022 Naglee Park Open Studios.

Charles Hawes [exhibited by Sue Burnham] Charles Hawes, known as Bud by his friends, was born in
Huntington, W.VA in 1909. Throughout his life Buds great loves were
art and people. These loves are palpably visible in all of his work. His
work during his first career (32 years as a nationally recognized
illustrator) focused on magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies,
cartoons and children's books. During this time he became a member
of both the National Society of Illustrators and the American
Watercolor Society. In 1964 Bud visited St. John in the U.S.V.I. and
fell in love with the West Indies and her people. In 1965 he moved to
St. Croix, U.S.V.I. where he began his prolific second career, that of a
watercolor artist. Bud spent the next 28 years capturing his deep love
for these islands and their people through his dynamic watercolors.
He often described his style of painting as being loose,
impressionistic and realistic. He used a technique called 'forcing
color' to capture the ever-moving vibrancy of the West Indies, making
many of his watercolors seem alive. Most of these paintings now
hang throughout the world in the homes and offices of patrons who
also shared that same love.
