Sunday, May 22, 2011
Where: Artport Gallery
Sunday, May 22, 2011
The Council on Culture & Arts is pleased to present Power and Politics: Paintings by Lance deHaven-Smith an exhibition at the Artport Gallery from March 23 - May 23, 2011 as part of the Arts in Public Places program.
As an adept oil painter and a professor in the School of Public Administration and Policy at FSU, Lance deHaven-Smith is uniquely capable of using art to explore power and status. deHaven-Smith's art is an aspect of his lifelong interest in politics and power. His oil paintings show how power relations are written into the architecture, location and the even the heights of the buildings in downtown Tallahassee.
"If you look at the governmental buildings in relation to other (downtown) buildings, they are straining to be on top and overshadow one another. They aren't thinking about how they look as a group. You end up with a good deal of struggle for presence."
In this exhibit, deHaven-Smith displays his impressionistic style filled with color, movement and energy. Downtown scenes and city-scapes that are familiar to residents and frequent visitors are compressed and presented from unusual and imaginary vantage points challenging the viewer to contemplate how power and politics are expressed in the world around us.
This exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery Hours: 8:00am - 11:30pm daily. The Artport Gallery is located inside the Tallahassee Regional Airport, 3300 Capital Circle SW
The exhibition is curated by the Council on Culture & Arts' Arts in Public Places program on behalf of the City of Tallahassee. For more information about this program, visit www.cocanet.org.
