About Bill Christenberry:
Bill Christenberry moved to Washington in 1968 with his wife Sandy to teach at the Corcoran School of Art where he served as a teacher for the next forty years. Bill had a long and distinguished career as an artist, teacher, and mentor to hundreds of students. Bill’s own work expressed his deep love of his native Alabama, notably Hale County made famous by James Agee and Walker Evans in “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men.” Bill was a multi-faceted artist — painter, photographer, sculptor, story teller, and educator about the South. Bill died in 2016 at the age of 80. He was not only an internationally renowned artist but a beloved citizen of Cleveland Park where he and Sandy moved in 1972. In 2023 Bill’s work will be exhibited in tandem with the work of RaMell Ross at Pace Gallery in New York.
