Final Friday May 26th, 2017
5:30pm – 8:00pm
“Pictures, visual images of any kind of any subject dominate my life. Nature first, then art.” – Patric Rowley (1924-2016)
“I observed a man who could see the beauty in the every day. I was taught to see the beauty in nature by Bill Dickerson.” – Oscar Larmer
Life-long friends Oscar Larmer and the late Patric Rowley both studied under Bill Dickerson, became professors of art in Kansas and have shown work in countless exhibitions throughout their lifetimes. These iconic Kansas artists’ work is highly influenced by an appreciation for nature; a trait they likely learned from Dickerson. Meet Oscar Larmer and view artwork by both artists on Final Friday, May 26th.
