LYNN BOGGESS: SOLO EXHIBITION
AUGUST 26th, Friday, 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. opening for LYNN BOGGESS
With masterful use of line, palette and texture Lynn Boggess carries the viewer into his richly verdant and luscious landscapes, where these works were conceived.
Lynn Boggess’ subjects reflect the diverse nature of West Virginia and its flora. Boggess draws the viewer into the deeply receding spaces of his images. The pictures, devoid of human or animal habitation, focus on Nature, free of the influence of human activity. Boggess compels the viewer to contemplate each scene in turn, and finally the cycle of scenes: the lapse of hours; the alternating character of the rocks, of the trees and of the land; the turn of season. The paintings themselves become the spaces they portray.

EMOTIONAL CONTENT: Works on Paper
Group exhibition curated by Kent Williams
Opening Friday, September 30th, 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Exhibition on display through November 19th, 2016
Avoiding the last two or more decades’ trend for sterile, affectingly detached and branded works of art, I’ve asked a select group of artists who channel emotion into every move they make – every mark-making decision put to paper, to participate in my curatorial debut for Evoke Contemporary. Works where personality plays a major role in the makeup of the projective goal.
- Kent Williams
