Artist Boyd Saunders, above at work in his studio, will speak at the KCHS program in Camden on his process and research in creating his painting The Battle of Hanging Rock, which is on exhibit at the South Carolina State Museum, Columbia, SC.

At our May 19 program in Camden, open to the public, you will also learn about the Battle of Hanging Rock itself, an action near the present Kershaw-Lancaster boundary that is part of our Revolutionary history, fought 10 days before the Battle of Camden.

You will also learn more about the artist himself, a colorful raconteur and world-exhibited artist who is the subject of a new book, below,  A View from the South: The Narrative Art of Boyd Saunders, by Thomas Dewey II. More on this book.
