Art That Makes You Smile

The Gentle Surrealism of John K. Crum


Art That Makes You Smile is exactly what you will see at Art League Gallery’s newest exhibition featuring art by John K. Crum from November 7 to December 2. An artist’s reception will be held on November 9, from 5 -7 PM. This event is free and open to the public.


John K. Crum’s artwork is best described as “coastal romanticism with whimsical yet surrealist styling.” While Crum paints mainly what he imagines, the constant themes of romance, friendship, whimsy, and gentle surrealism are his favorite subjects. “I consider my painting successful when the viewer stops, takes a closer look, and then smiles,” stated Crum.

John K. Crum is a graduate of Ringling School of Art and Design with a degree in fine and graphic arts. Crum has made a living as a graphic designer, illustrator, painter, and muralist. Having moved to Hilton Head in 2011, Crum credits his style to the local culture and “stunning landscapes of the Lowcountry.”

Come see art that will brighten your day at Art League of Hilton Head’s newest exhibit Art That Makes You Smile from November 7 – December 2.
