Arts for ACT Gallery will showcase the art of Roger Brown in August. An opening reception will be held Friday, Aug. 6 from 6 to 10 p.m. in conjunction with Fort Myers Art Walk.
Roger Brown is an artist who draws upon a lifetime of experiences to create art on a daily basis. As an International banker and business man he has lived and conducted business in New York; Hamburg, Germany; Paris, France; Tehran, Iran; Singapore; Bangkok, Thailand; San Diego, California; Bombay, India and Hong Kong.
Since 1998, he has devoted himself entirely to art. 10 years as a creator of mosaics with over a dozen solo shows dedicated to the medium. He studied the art form in Ravenna, Italy, under master Luciana Notturni of Scula Arte del Mosaico. His mosaics are owned by collectors throughout the country and number over 200.
In 2009 he turned his attention to oil painting and received instruction from Emmy Award winning artist David Dunlop of the Silvermine Guild Arts Center, New Canaan, Connecticut. His work in oils show a solid understanding of the unities of color, form and movement. Dozens of his oils are in private collections, primarily in the United States.
His attention turned to watercolor with his move to Florida in 2013. The medium affords him the opportunity to complete a creative process, often within an hour or so. Of late, his style has involved the mixing of watercolor and pastel into a unique texture based painting. These small “wall gems” present a surprising array of color and mystery.
Retired, Roger continues to travel, painting daily everywhere and anywhere. The work on display at ACT Gallery is an interesting mix of local Floridian subject matter and pieces drawn from his international adventures.This exhibit continues through Aug. 30.
Donated works by a variety of artists will be on display in the white gallery. ACT Gallery is located at 2265 First St. in downtown Fort Myers. Call 239-337-5050 for more details.
