The Heritage Fine Arts Guild of Arapahoe County will host an October 7 workshop emphasizing modern expressionism. Taught by Colorado artist Lance Green, the one-day session will enable participants to explore new avenues of color and self-expression.
Lance Green was born in Colorado and lived there until the age of 10. For several years he traveled about the Southwest with his mother and stepfather, living in the Colorado high country, the bayous of Lake Texarkana and the high deserts of New Mexico and Arizona where he was immersed in native art and culture.
As a teen, the family settled in east Los Angeles where he developed a love for Latin art and culture. While attending high school his art teacher, Linda Stevens, gave him the guidance that he needed to set his life course as an artist.
His work reflects the influence of the the late contemporary master Fritz Scholder with whom he did a series of one-on-one workshops in the late 1960s. Others whose works contributed to his unique style include Nathan Oliviera, Manual Neri, and Mexican masters Laura Hernandez and Rufino Tamayo.
Lance now makes his home in Manitou Springs where he paints in his studio. His work is displayed in Copper Moon Gallery in Taos, N.M., Canyon Road Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, Darpino Gallery in Manitou Springs, and Wilde Meyer Gallery in Scottsdale, Ariz.
