Imagined/Observed

Dan Thornhill and Jon Shannon Rogers

Second Floor Gallery

October 14 through December 4, 2011

 

Opening reception on October 14, 5 - 8 pm, with live music by The Smittle Band, in conjunction with downtown Little Rock's 2nd Friday Art Night

 

Imagined/Observed celebrates creative possibility and individual style by presenting two distinctive approaches to the medium of paint.

 

Dan Thornhill and Jon Shannon Rogers create work as unique as their personalities. Thornhill’s boldly colored still lifes and toy-scapes go beyond the representational to express the artist’s ebullient outlook on life. While Thornhill visualizes his personal philosophy, Rogers reveals a keen interest in his surroundings. Rogers’s landscapes and cityscapes show that he is intent on exploring and understanding his environment.
