Ivey Hayes

A native of eastern North Carolina, Ivey Hayes received his BA degree from North Carolina Central University. He went on to study at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and obtained his Masters in Fine Art at the University Of North Carolina, Greensboro, in 1975.

Ivey developed his unique style by drawing upon his personal experiences. His use of bright colors to express feeling and emotion makes each of his pieces come to life with its own distinct personality. Owning an Ivey Hayes original or giclee is a true joy for his many followers.

Ivey’s popularity continues to grow. He has won numerous awards for his work including the Presidential and Celebrity awards at the North Carolina Azalea Festival Master Arts Exhibit held in Wilmington, NC. His artwork has been shown on the Charlie Rose Show, at the US Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C., and at various galleries and exhibitions throughout the United States. He created the artwork for the First Annual North Carolina Blueberry Festival, available here as a Limited Edition giclee on canvas.

Ivey Hayes has been selected to create the art for the 2005 North Carolina Azalea Festival held annually in Wilmington, North Carolina. A major one-man show is planned for 2005 at the Louise Wells Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC.

Ivey Hayes is considered by many as a master of Southern Nouveau style and a national treasure.
