SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

In response to Julienne Chené and her letter regarding the artwork of Roy Gonzalez, I know Mr. Gonzalez very well. He is my next-door neighbor and one of the nicest persons I have known.

Mr. Gonzalez has won numerous awards for his artwork. His style is unique. I would caution Ms. Chené to refrain from telling us what his painting on his home page “depicts.” That would be left to the artist.

Do you find his artwork for the Ocean Festival offensive? If not, then what business is it of yours what he chooses to paint?
