Artist Biography

In Celebration [SAAM, 1977. 47.31] Charles Searles evokes joy. His interest in color, pattern, mask forms, and dance movement derives from his studies in Ghana, Nigeria, and Morocco. In his rhythmic lines and colors, you might deduce (correctly!) that Searles has played percussion instruments for many years.
