“Flight” by Addison Palmer

Local painter Addison Palmer, known for his exceptional landscapes and wildlife paintings, will teach a two-day plein air workshop April 23-24 at Art League Academy.

The class, aimed at all skill levels, will focus on using acrylics to capture quintessential Lowcountry scenes. Palmer, an award-winning painter and experienced instructor, was the Art League Gallery’s Featured Artist in March.

Palmer is a life-long artist who grew up on Hilton Head Island in an artistic family. His father is Jim Palmer, a renowned landscape painter.

From an early age, Addison began painting the world around him. Since the age of 13, Palmer has been painting full time, doing commissions, shows and work for galleries.

He has hundreds of works in private and business collections around the world, and his art can be seen in galleries all along the East Coast. He also is known for teaching painting and drawing workshops throughout the eastern United States. Since 1997, he has taught painting classes and given demonstrations on world cruises – he has been around the world four times on some 30-plus cruises.

Palmer’s accolades include inclusion in the exclusive 2018 “Birds in Art” international art show, in which he was one of just 90 artists from around the globe invited to participate.
