Biography  
Charles Harris


Biography from the Archives of askART

He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design; his teachers were Cyrus Farnum, Stacy Tolman, and George A. Hays.  Harris was a member of and exhibited at the Providence Art Club, the Providence Watercolor Club, and the South County Art Association.  He also exhibited at the Attleboro Museum of Art, among others.  

A life-long Rhode Island resident, he taught and supported local artists and took painting trips, including to Bermuda.

Following is a testimonial from one of his students, artist Caroline Edlund:

At the age of 11, I began painting lessons with C. Gordon Harris.  He was my first painting teacher and one of three most influential instructors in developing my skills as a painter.  He was an amicable, pleasant man.  He painted on location from early April through October.  After his passing, a movement was begun to honor his memory.  A painting was purchased and presented to the Lincoln Town Hall in his memory.
