Artist’s Reception with Lynn Boggess

About

Plein air session at 5:30pm and reception at 7pm. You can expect to view up to 15 of his works in the gallery along with an opportunity to meet and greet with the celebrated artist. Includes light hors d'oeuvres, beer & wine to be served. Reservations are highly encouraged.

Growing up in rural West Virginia, the core of Boggess’ works reflect the state’s diverse nature and flora. Earning an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Boggess’ paintings have since transformed from complex postmodern layered imagery to what can now be described as tactile realism; eschewing the use of the traditional brush in favor of a cement trowel. In the best en plein air tradition, he takes to the outdoors in all kinds of weather to create masterful and heroic pieces where “nearly everyone who has walked on a hillside or stood in a wooded grove can hear, smell and feel the place where [Boggess] stood.”
