Vernon Grant's Winter Wonderland opens at the Center for the Arts on Nov. 17, 2017. Grant’s favorite subject, Santa Claus, along with his whimsical gnomes, and published scenes of winter will be on exhibit in the Dalton and Perimeter Galleries through December 29, 2017. Come explore Grant’s humorous art and share some laughter with friends and family as you peer into his depictions of this holiday season.


Illustrator Vernon Grant is known for his ability to imagine and to create colorful and unique works of art. Armed with a paintbrush in hand and an idea in mind, Grant quickly brought playful thoughts to life as illustrations for all to enjoy. His gift of storytelling through art captured the attention of advertisers, companies and publishers. Grant’s illustrations appeared in print on the covers of national magazines, advertising products, greeting cards and children’s books from the 1920s through the 1970s. |

And Pop! Characters for Kellogg Co. and create illustrations for more than 240 magazine covers, his works have inspired the two largest festivals held in Rock Hill, SC – Come-See-Me Festival in April, and ChristmasVille in December.
