Jasxon Sacran and John P. Lasater IV
Work by contemporary representational painters Jason Sacran and John P. Lasater IV. Both are Arkansas artists who have traveled throughout the United States teaching workshops, while also garnering top awards in a variety of notable exhibitions. The work included in the April show combines a selection of the artists’ paintings, along with studio work. Brotherhood will open with a reception from 5-9 p.m. on Friday, April 7, in conjunction with the monthly Gallery Walk in downtown Hot Springs. The artists will be present at a closing reception on Friday, April 28 from 4-6 p.m. and will participate in a still life painting demonstration on Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. - Noon. The exhibit will be on display April 7-30, 2017.
Sacran and Lasater both paint what catches their interest in the moment and are often drawn to capture overlooked and familiar aspects of everyday scenes. Their work reflects responses to patterns of light and shadows, a mood or atmosphere, an orchestration of shapes, color contrasts, or even curiosity about a new subject. A profound gratitude for life unifies the work.
