“Open to Interpretation, one artist’s many perspectives” presents loose abstract works Dill hopes the viewer will perceive through their own eyes and interpret to find meanings that resonate within their own experiences.

Native Mississippian William Dill spent his formative years in the South and Southwest primarily in Texas and Mississippi. Dill and his husband/collaborator relocated to Tryon in 2015, where they have become integrated into the community and reveled in the quantity and quality of regional and international artists, writers and performers who live and visit there.

Dill’s varied education includes fine arts and study and work in esoteric philosophy. Like other notable figures in the tech pantheon, Dill dropped out of college to forge a successful career in IT, achieving a senior leadership position in one of America’s leading financial institutions. After 40+ years as IT professional, Dill retired in 2012.

Retirement has afforded Dill the opportunity to revisiting his passion for fine arts. Dill enjoys experimenting with varied media in his works and is enjoying the journeying this phase of his life, being an emerging artist. Many of Dills works are in private collections in California, Texas, Virginia, Mississippi, and North Carolina. Some of these include works donated as auction items for non-profits Dill holds near and dear including Human Rights Campaign.
