Well-recognized Colorado artist Lance Green is the juror chosen for Heritage Fine Arts Guild’s annual “This Is Colorado” exhibit, which opens with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 12 in the Colorado Gallery of the Arts at Arapahoe Community College, Littleton. (Green will be present.)
Green, who lives and paints in Manitou Springs, will also be in Littleton to conduct a workshop, aimed to awaken new avenues of color and self-expression, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 7. It is titled “Contemporary Figurative Expressionism” and will be held at First Presbyterian Church, Littleton, 1609 W. Littleton Blvd. Open to non-members as well as members, it requires pre-registration ($30 members, $50 non-members).
Green was born in Colorado and lived in the state until he was about 10, then traveled about the Southwest with his mother and stepfather, living in Colorado high country, bayous of Lake Texarkana and high deserts of New Mexico and Arizona, where he was immersed in native art and culture.
When he was a teen, the family settled in east Los Angeles, where he developed a love for Latin art and culture. A high school art teacher, Linda Stevens, “gave him the guidance he needed to set his life course as an artist,” he writes.
In the late 1960s, he did a series of one-on-one workshops with the late contemporary master Fritz Scholder and his work reflects that influence. Other influences on Green’s style are Nathan Olivera, Manual Neri and Mexican masters Laura Hernandez and Rufino Tamayo.
Green is represented by Copper Moon Gallery in Taos, New Mexico; Canyon Road Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Darpino Gallery in Colorado Springs; and Wilde Meyer Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona.
