When Raleigh artist Bill Ballard died in 1997, he left a treasury of art — from sports caricatures (left) and line drawings to wildlife paintings and landscapes. An exhibit of original paintings, prints and other illustrations by Ballard has been on display in the Butler Communication Services Building at N.C. State University since June 10. Ballard, one of North Carolina’s best known illustrators of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, was at one time a staff member in the Agricultural Communications Department (now Communication Services) in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. A long-time illustrator for the Raleigh News & Observer, he was well-known throughout the state for his art and cartoons in the N&O’s sports section, including the “In Conference” cartoons published during college football seasons, the Dixie Classic Basketball Tournament and the ACC Basketball Tournament.
