 Henry C. Setter

Exhibit ran from September 15-October 31, 2005

While recuperating from surgery in 1973, Setter illustrated the entire Song of Solomon in a total of seventy-eight plates, which you can view on the coming pages.

Henry Setter started his academic studies in the United States and in Europe which contributed to his cultural enrichment and studio skills.  He has been in the classroom for forty-two years as a teacher, but still finds time to work professionally as a sculptor.  At the Dayton Art Institute in Ohio he mastered the skills of watercolor painting, but it was in summer classes at Ohio State University that he initiated his sculptural ambitions under the tutelage of Professor William Thompson.  When Thompson moved to head the sculpture program at the University of Georgia, he followed to earn his M.F.A. in sculpture at the campus in Athens, Georgia.

Setter has executed numerous art commissions in the United States and in Europe.  His watercolors, mosaics and sculptures have found homes in private and public collections, again here and abroad His woodblock prints and sculptures have received awards in periodic juried exhibitions across Georgia and the United States of America.
