Raised in creative family, art found me, and Arless Day embraced it. The exuberant energy he had for art as a child is still with him Both his father, a woodcarver, and his brother, an artist, had a wonderful influence on his love for art. He served in the US Army for three years and worked as an Illustrator for " Infantry Magazine ".
While attending Ringling College of Art, he met his wife, Patsy Mauldin. They later opened an Illustration / Design Studio, " Twoday Design " for 7 years. Among some of our clients were the Mint Museum, Romare Bearden catalog and poster, Busch Gardens, Williamsburg poster, World Golf Hall of Fame program, covers for the Charlotte Motor Speedway programs and Coca-Cola Corporation posters.
Day started doing watercolors in 1981 after seeing an exhibition by Joseph Raffael at the Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC and was inspired to go into Fine Arts. In 1988 he did his first Gouache Collage Painting and now in 2016 he has decided to use Acrylic paint on gesso board for the collages.
Day’s fine arts collections include Mint Museum, The Ogden Museum of Art, Gibbes Museum of Art, Columbus Museum of Art, Senator Russell Long, David and Lucille Packard Foundation, Blount, Inc., Charlotte Hornets NBA, Hunter Museum of Art, Texaco Inc., AT&T and IBM.
