Larry Davis: Abstracted Paintings in Oil & Cold Wax
Join us in the BCA gallery for an opening reception is 5-7pm on Friday, January 27 to meet artist, Larry Davis. Davis, a native Iowan, grew up along the Mississippi River. After attaining a BA in Fine Art at the University of Iowa he completed a four-year tour with the USAF in England before returning to the Midwest to begin his professional arts career. In 1986, Davis moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where he took a position at what is now Florida State College at Jacksonville, serving as both a full time Professor of Art, and for many years, as art department coordinator. During this time he finished his Masters Degree studies at Jacksonville University while also pursuing an active artistic output and exhibition schedule. Davis’ undergraduate art experience in the 1960s at the University of Iowa, as well as his graduate studies, left him with an appreciation for both realistic and abstracted art. While he still uses both approaches, the bulk of his current production is in oil/cold wax and focuses on the abstract.
