Working with the Charles Culver curator Andrea Gerring, the Charlevoix Circle of Arts presents A Charles Culver Retrospective opening on September 29 from 5-7 pm and running through November 4th. Bellaire artist Charles Beech Culver was born in 1908 and his life ended in 1967. He loved jazz music, and for a short time in the late 20’s and early 30’s went on the road as a musician to earn extra money, playing tenor sax and clarinet. In addition to music, Culver had worked as a cartoonist for the Royal Oak Tribune in the 1920’s. Culver’s love of music, his work on children’s books and cartoons were only hobbies, and to make money he worked several years at the Chevrolet Studios in the General Motors Building in Detroit as a commercial artist.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. Curator Andrea Gerring will present an Inner Circle Gallery Talk on October 12 beginning at 10 am to discuss the life and work of Charles Culver.
