State Rep. Bakari Sellers is presenting on Friday a resolution passed by the General Assembly that will name a crossroads in Harrison’s honor in his hometown of Denmark.

The state Department of Transportation has officially named the intersection at U.S. Highways 321 and 78 in Denmark as “Harrison Crossroads.”

The resolution says Harrison works in oils, watercolors and pencil sketches. He is well-known for rural pieces like railroad stations, churches and covered bridges.

Congrats Mr. Harrison

I see his wonderful works all over and have been a fan of his for many years.

His scenes of yesterday will help to keep the memories of a simpler time alive forever.

Met him unexpectedly a while

Met him unexpectedly a while back. I know he's in the area a lot for signings and whatnot, but I stopped by his studio on the way to Charleston back in May hoping to pick up a copy of his book of Palmetto tree artwork in his shop. Turns out he was actually there that day doing interviews for a TV show. Got the book and actually ended up buying a print since he was there to sign it. Not only did he sign both things, but he also personalized each with a little sketch of a Palmetto. Nice guy, and now I have a great print hanging on my wall that I can pass down someday.
