Barnie Slice

Barnie's art career started in high School where he took four years of art. At age 16 he did his first real painting in oil and has been painting more than 100 paintings a year since that time with many years reaching over 250 paintings. He is in his 52nd year of painting and continues to paint several paintings a week in watercolor, acrylics or oil. Teaching came natural to Barnie and he started teaching art classes in his late twenties and has taught more than forty years in some capacity teaching students in oils, acrylics and watercolors. Several of his students have gone on to become well known artist and one even owns her own advertising agency. During the Reagan Era, Barnie had two paintings in the White House in Washington, DC in Mr. Lee Atwater's office. In 1998 he became South Carolina's first artist to win the National Contest for the South Carolina Saltwater Fish Stamp with his rendition of the Cobia. Barnie also worked full time as a mural artist from 1991 until 2004 painting more than fifty miles of walls in 375 schools across the Carolinas working with more than 300,000 students and 30,000 staff. He is in his fourth year of teaching at Coastal Carolina University, Waccamaw Branch and teaches four classes a week, during the season, in several mediums. Barnie is a member of the Seacoast Artist Guild and the South Carolina Watermedia Society. His work can be seen is several galleries in the Pawleys Island and Georgetown area.
