Artists Everywhere

The Parks & Recreation Department is bringing more art to North Myrtle Beach.  Artists Everywhere is a monthly art display at City Hall to showcase our local artist’s talent and provide beautiful public displays for our residents and visitors.  We are working hard to put together a great line up of local artists varying from painters, to sculptors, to potters, and much more.

The Parks & Recreation Department is proud to present the art created by:

Richard McGrath!

Born in Newburgh, New York where he graduated in 1963, Richard is a self-taught wood carver and has been carving since 1995. He has been a competitive carver in various states and has won many ribbons, and is best noted for his fish carvings. Richard has taken second place in the Salt Water Fish category in the South West Art Shows, the past two years as well as third best for specialty fish.

Richard has received over 60 ribbons in the past 10 years, and has received a third place award in 2011 at the International show in England for paint for the fish: Crappie over Crayfish.

Richard belongs to three carving groups in the Carolina’s, two of which he started along the Grand Strand. He resided in Myrtle Beach, with his lovely wife Janie.

Stop by City Hall and check out his masterpieces!
