H+K Gallery in partnership with The Spartanburg County Foundation presented approximately 100 remaining works of art from Dr. Betty Bramlett’s estate Thursday, June 16, 2016.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with the Foundation to honor Dr. Bramlett for her contribution not only to the local art community, but statewide. It is our pleasure to be the shell to such a wonderful remembrance of her works and her life,” said Susan Henderson Kunkler, owner of H+K Gallery.
Dr. Bramlett was the Fine Arts Coordinator for Spartanburg County School District Seven and a recipient of The Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award for teaching. She showcased several works of art in galleries, juried exhibitions, and private collections.
Dr. Bramlett left her legacy by investing her assets with The Spartanburg County Foundation, establishing a planned gift that would continue to benefit her philanthropic interests. Per Dr. Bramlett’s wishes, all proceeds from this event will go to the Bramlett Family Fund held at the Foundation.
“The Spartanburg County Foundation is honored to partner with H+K Gallery to fulfill the planned giving wishes of Dr. Betty Bramlett,” said Troy Hanna, President and CEO of The Spartanburg County Foundation. “Dr. Bramlett loved art and her community. The presentation and sale of her remaining works epitomizes her dedication to the betterment of Spartanburg County by combining art and philanthropy. We are grateful for the generous partnership of H+K Gallery for facilitating this sale commission-free.”
