Where: Artport Gallery
Sunday, May 1, 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.

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.

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.

The Council on Culture & Arts is pleased to present Impression of a Moment: Paintings by John Metcalfe an exhibition at the Artport Gallery from May 25 - July 25, 2011 as part of the Arts in Public Places program.
From an early age, John Metcalfe was drawn to all things artistic. He studied architectural and mechanical drafting, which allowed him to develop an eye for perspective and form. As an adult, Metcalfe became an avid art collector and opened a Havana based gallery to house his ever expanding collection. In 2001, his love for collecting artwork turned into a love for creating it. Metcalfe started painting landscapes in a dramatic and impressionistic style. These unforgettable paintings are described by the artist as "confetti."
"I create my paintings completely from memory and imagination. Trees don't have to be green; water doesn't have to be blue. I've heard my work described as "if Monet were to meet Jackson Pollock."
In this exhibit, the viewer will discover abstracted landscapes painted with acrylic on canvas. Metcalfe uses a bold spectrum of colors which is sure to uplift and transport the viewer into an enchanted "confetti" land.
