I, Charlene Montgomery, am a board member of Columbia County Arts, a member of the Columbia County Artist Guild, and a member of McDuffie Arts Council. I was voted artist of the year in 2011 by the McDuffie Arts Council.
I have hung paintings at many galleries around the southeast area including Low Country Artist in Charleston, MAC on Main in Thomson, Lincoln County Artisans in Lincolnton, Le Lis Boutique, Salon at Surrey, Hair World, and Bargain Hunters in Evans/Augusta.
I am owner and teacher of Ms Charlene's School of the Arts. I have been teaching for over 15 years. My students in the last 5 years have won over 500 awards, including Best of Shows at State and Local fairs, Junior Duck Stamp competition, and various awards from Gertrude Herbert competitions.
My daughter, Jessi, has been teaching with me for 10 years. Jessi and I teach fine art, and offer parties and camps for adults and children. Al Montgomery, my husband, offers beginning and advanced guitar lessons. He has been teaching or playing professionally for over 30 years.
