Henry Porter

Henry C. Porter was born in Bishopville, SC in 1921 and lived most of his life in New York and Georgia. He entered Morgan State University on a football scholarship in 1940 and was drafted into the army while in college. Henry later resumed his education, studying painting at the Academy of Arts in Newark, NJ, and graphic design and illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. For the next thirty years he operated his own freelance graphic studio in New York City, winning awards and corporate contracts for his point-of-sale displays, costumes, and packaging design. At this time, Henry also embarked on a career as a fine artist, a calling to which he would devote himself to full-time after moving to Kennesaw, GA in 1980. As an artist he found acclaim for his polished figurative paintings and his highly charged abstracts on Plexiglas. Henry Porter has had numerous gallery, institution, and museum shows that include the Brooklyn Museum in New York City, the Harriet Tubman Museum in Macon, GA., displays at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, GA., and exhibits at Morris Brown College in Atlanta, GA. Henry C. Porter will be remembered as a man who had strong convictions and who was ever looking for the next challenge.

The black Messiah was a

The black Messiah was a gift that was a request from one of the saints in the church I attend! We both were delighted with the quality of the picture! And the bonus was the lost sheep that he held, which as you know is scriptual! Blessings!
