We are pleased once again to present our annual Lynn Boggess exhibition. “Lynn Boggess: 10 Years at The Haen Gallery” will open with the artist’s reception on Saturday, October 22nd from 5:30-7:30pm. The artist will be in attendance for the opening and the exhibit will run through November.
NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
“It is hard to believe that 10 years have passed since we opened The Haen Gallery with a show featuring Lynn Boggess, the unique and quintessential Appalachian painter. We are honored to have had Lynn as a part of our gallery since 2006 and we are proud to present this collection of stunning new paintings. We hope you will join us in celebration.”
~Chris Foley, Gallery Director
Lynn Boggess is one of the most unique and noteworthy American landscape painters of the 21st Century. He resides in West Virginia, a state whose diverse mountains, forests, and rivers provide abundant inspiration for the artist’s plein air paintings. In place of brushes Boggess uses palette knives and trowels to thickly layer the broad sweeping strokes and exquisite fine detail that capture all the colors of the seasons in rushing rivers, snow covered hillsides, and thick forest vegetation. Boggess’ work is recognized throughout the country for its incredible three-dimensional texture, rendered solely in oils. These remarkable landscapes bridge the gap between Abstract Expressionism and Photorealism.
The Haen Gallery in Asheville is located at 52 Biltmore Avenue between the City Bakery and Chestnut. There is a parking garage at the Aloft hotel across the street, another garage just up the hill, as well as street parking. The gallery is open seven days a week, Monday to Saturday 11am-6pm, Sunday 12-5pm. For more info: 828-254-8577 or www.thehaengallery.com.
