ROGER EVANS: VIRTUAL REALITY
May 2-28, 2023
Artist reception Sunday, May 7, 1-4 pm
Virtual Reality is an exhibition of paintings and the mixed-media sculpture Roger Evans is known for, combining his knowledge of building materials, engineering and illustration with humor and social commentary.
Evans’ version of reality is a play on the idioms of art in contemporary society – where real, imagined and simulated worlds collide. As the art world indulges in 3D virtual worlds that connect users to digital experiences, he uses his imagination to combine what is a part of the real or physical world and one that exists only in the imagination.
In addition to enjoying Evans’ work and that of other gallery artists, those attending the reception will be treated to “color in song” as Evans, an accomplished musician, shares some of his improvisational, original compositions for piano from 3:00 to 4:00.
“My sculptures are playful, but they’re mostly idea-based, not casual or frivolous. There’s a whole lot under there. A lot of ways to look at them.”
The reception will be celebrated with fellowship and refreshments on Sunday May 7 from 1-4 p.m. The gallery continues to follow all COVID-19 safety recommendations in place at the time of the reception.
