Paintings should be started fast and finished slow. The slower the finish the longer the creativity remains in the artist's mind and the less likely that the work will be declared done prematurely. The new Koger show includes the slowest and richest group of paintings in my career. The most recent work in this show, a 6X10 foot canvas, was put on the current canvas in 1992, with parts of unfinished paintings from as long ago as 1976 used as collage, and finished in 2020: A forty-four year painting.
While we are eager to gather again at the Koger Center to witness the curtain rise for another round of spectacular live performances, for now we are embracing our community virtually. During this intermission as we await the next act, please enjoy these online resources for a taste of the magic behind the Tony-winning Broadway musical Bandstand!
Koger Apprentice events are open to all students free of charge. Events will be held at the Koger Center for the Arts. Please contact Simms Oliphant by calling (803) 777-7500 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
