Opened in 1981 with the assistance of Bill’s brother Bob Carey, Carey-Mangum Gallery in Greensboro, North Carolina debuted in meager surroundings. Bill took over 900 sq. ft. of a high profile dress shop, placing the painting he was working on in the window at the end of each day. The grocery store next door was just the ticket for early exposure to his work. Customers marveled that even at that time, Bill was a prolific artist — generating a painting a week.
In just a few years his limited edition prints were catching the attention of many collectors across the state. In just a couple of years, his business blossomed so beautifully that it allowed him to assume the entire store space. This allowed him to showcase his work exclusively in a 2,000 square foot gallery.
In 2000, his staff of seventeen prepared to expand and relocate the gallery. Lawndale Shopping Center made an excellent location and two stores conveniently became available. As part of his growing name recognition the gallery was renamed William Mangum Fine Art. Nearly 5,000 square feet now showcase Bill’s paintings and limited edition prints. The store has been credited as one of the finest art galleries in the South.
At 2166 Lawndale Drive you’ll always find an array of Bill’s newest original paintings. Six to eight are published into limited edition art prints each year. Custom framing is key in adding the final personal touches to make your décor unique and William Mangum Fine Art has a handsome selection of picture moldings to match your exquisite taste.
Bill’s paintings have been reproduced into a variety of stylish gift items and many collectors express how they enjoy giving to friends and family. You’ll find everything from note-cards to entertaining puzzles that feature his extraordinary artwork. His prints and gift items offer a vast variety of scenes from across the globe — North Carolina to Europe. If you're looking for excellent accents to compliment your home or office décor be sure to visit the gallery. Bill and his friendly, professional Greensboro, North Carolina art gallery staff will be happy to assist you with any need.
