Royce and Friends – Art in the Slow Lane

An Exhibition and Sale Featuring Works From Royce Deans, Angela Saxon, Anne Corlett and Lynn Uhlmann
Having eight straight shared summer exhibitions behind them at the OAB (and a 4-year hiatus following that), 2021 Ann Hall Visiting Artist Royce Deans thought it was time to get the band back together!

The show contains 40 recent works: Paintings, drawings, and monotypes – all created during the pandemic. 16 pieces from this online show (indicated here in caption below work) are hanging at the Old Art Building. You are welcome to come by and view them in person.

Video studio visits from each artist are below so you can become acquainted with how they work.

Sales will support the artists as well as the Old Art Building. We thank you for your patronage.

Royce Deans

Royce Deans was born of parents that understood the important role that art plays in society and how crucial exposure to and participation in is to the development of a young person. He was raised in the western suburbs of Chicago with access to museums and concert halls of every variety. Graduating from the American Academy of Art in Chicago gave him the foundations to build a life in the arts.

“Moving to Traverse City some thirty years ago set my art on a wonderful trajectory. I count each artistic endeavor I have embarked on as a rich experience that has shaped the artist I am today. Living in such an incredibly beautiful place, the landscape has, of course, become an overwhelming source of inspiration.

My love for teaching and art has allowed me to travel far and wide. I feel so fortunate that my artwork has made it possible to work in many of the countries of Western Europe and Israel presenting classes, workshops, and retreats.

As the 2020/2021 Ann Hall Visiting Artist at the Old Art Building, it is a great honor to work with the staff to create, exhibit, and teach at that most supportive, vibrant, and vital place.”

Angela Saxon

Time. Careful, honest, attentive looking. Angela Saxon’s artistic practice is informed by these concepts. Looking at a particular subject at a particular time of day in a specific light — observing and recording in a collective way. Capturing in marks and visual phrases the passage of time.

Angela has been engaged in actively pursuing this evolving understanding of the landscape for the last three decades.

While her painting is direct and confident, she takes risks regularly and remains open to creative chance: Contained in the open space between communication and doubt, Angela’s work exists in a continuing state of evolution.

Her work includes large landscapes on canvas, monotypes of the landscape, the figure and, currently, large scale abstract graphite drawings on paper. The 2020-21 pandemic has supported her quiet explorations and offered even more open shapes of time for discovery.

Lynn Uhlmann

For many years Lynn Uhlmann has focused her painting to express an emotional connection with nature. The visual expression of this bond evolved from images of trees into a series of floral paintings. The flowers symbolized her positive mindset to promote healing after a difficult back surgery.

Then the pandemic arrived.

“When COVID-19 spread worldwide, these floral paintings became an essential lifeline beyond my own healing. To visually describe my emotions, the flowers float in darkness and light. They dance with each other and celebrate life. I feel their energy. I used an intuitive approach from visual memory rather than direct observation. Through painting, I experienced a break from the oppression of the pandemic. It was a way for me to balance deep sadness with hope, healing, and gratitude for family and friends.

All of the paintings, with one exception, are gouache on paper. I chose this medium to directly and quickly experiment on a small size. The last painting I’ve chosen for this exhibit is a larger oil on canvas. I wanted to interpret on a larger scale what I had learned from the small gouache paintings.

I lost my dear brother to COVID-19 last summer. My heart goes out to everyone who has lost someone during this tragic pandemic.”

Anne Corlett

Anne Corlett is a full-time artist, working and showing out of her studio on the Kalamazoo River in Saugatuck, Michigan. She crosses from one medium to another – oil, watercolor, pastel, monotype – in order to tease out new meaning and insight from familiar subjects. Each substance allows her to explore in a different way, discovering aspects heretofore hidden.

“My art is about expressing emotions. Every brushstroke or mark is a word, a phrase, a feeling. How they interact tells a story. Some paintings are like poems, leaving the viewer to interpret the imagery on their own. Some are more literal, expressing my gut reaction to the beach, for instance, while keeping it the primary focus of the work. Landscapes continue to call to me with insistence. Making art addresses my need to communicate the awe I feel about the natural world and my place in it.”
