The Bisbee Arizona Marquee

William Spencer III

William Spencer III was raised without Television so remains fascinated with the idea that the air might be filled with images, words and ideas that can't be seen unless properly 'tuned in' to the right wavelength'.

William Spencer III was raised in the midwest and artistically encouraged from the beginning. A Self-taught artist he started as graphic desiger then switched to fine art in 1990.

He works on Eucalyptus Panel using a ground of vinyl mixed with Lime Plaster then coated with Layers of shellac, Stain, Ammonia and Cellulose Resin. He incorporates silk-screen into some work, often with snippets of poetry or other musings onto the scarred and surfaced Art panel.

William Spencer has had a number of one-man shows and juried shows. Chosen for the Crocker Kingsley Exhibit, at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, and voted as 1992 Northern California Rising Star by "On the Wings" art group. William Spencer has been featured in the "Best of Sacramento" issue of "Sacramento Magazine," and in the nationally publicized "Decor" magazine. He will be featured in the upcoming issue of Art Book a widely circulated Fine Art Magazine out of Scottsdale. His work is exhibited throughout all four floors of the historic Curtis Center in Philadelphia, home of The Saturday Evening Post and Ladies Home Journal in the same white marble lobby with Maxfield Parrish and Louis C. Tiffany's 49 foot x 15 foot tall mural 'dream garden'.
