EVOKE Contemporary proudly presents Lynn Boggess in a solo exhibition. The show is scheduled to open in Santa Fe on Friday, June 7, 2013 and will run through June 30, 2013. There will be a reception for the artist on Friday, June 7th from 5 – 7pm and the public is invited.
Lynn Boggess presents an untouched vision of nature that transports the viewer to the reflective and pure environment in which his landscapes are created. By means of plein-air techniques and the use of cement trowels as brushes, an innovative approach to oil paint is realized, resulting in works that are simultaneously dynamic and soothing. These landscapes overwhelm the senses with lush and vivid scenes while also allowing room for meditation on the deeper relations between human life and the natural world.
Lynn Boggess grew up on a farm near Parkersburg, West Virginia. He received a BA in Art Education from Fairmont State College and an MFA in Painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He has been Professor of Art at Fairmont State College since 1990 and Coordinator of the Art Department since 2002. He has been honored with several prestigious awards in West Virginia, including the Higher Education Art Educator of the Year in 2001, Visual Artist of the Year in 1999, and the Governor’s Award of Excellence in Painting in 1997. Both public and private collectors have acquired his landscapes, including the West Virginia Governor’s Mansion, SAS Institute, and Eisai, Inc.
