Mayor’s portrait unveiled

A portrait of the late Clemson Mayor Larry Abernathy has been unveiled, as the first of a series of oil portraits to be commissioned of each of that city’s former mayors. Abernathy’s was unveiled Friday at the Clemson Area Transit facility. Public transit was a dream of Abernathy’s, and the background of portrait depicts a “CAT” bus. An artist originally from Australia, Justin Donaldson, was commissioned for the portrait. Donaldson is an artist guild member of the Arts Center of Clemson.
