The SJC Fine Art Committee Invitational: flora befora

Oct 11 - November 8, 2013




The 2013 San Juan College Fine Arts Committee Invitational will feature Durango artist John Grow and his collection of oil paintings titled “flora before,” at the San Juan College Henderson Fine Arts Center Gallery, October 11 – November 8.  The exhibit will open with a reception, Friday, October 11, from 6 to 8 p.m.           

Durango artist John Grow portrays nontraditional subjects with classic realism.  The award winning scholar and filmmaker has won eight Best of Show Awards for his symbolic/whimsical paintings of people.  Other subjects include archaeological reconstructions, historic Colorado railroads, and contemporary small town life.

Grow studied Art at Northwestern University.  His studio has been in the Four Corners region of the southwestern Colorado since 1978.  “I paint the things that I enjoy, as clearly as I can,” says Grow.

The San Juan College Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For further information about this exhibit or other Gallery events, contact Cindy McNealy at 505-566-3464 or mcnealyc@sanjuancollege.edu.
