The Lights Parade Committee invites you to meet this year's Llights Parade Poster artist at a special reception on Wednesday, November 12, at 7 p.m. Get a look at the 2014 Lights Parade poster as Commodore Scott Miller unveils it. Meet the artist, Charles Lawrance, who also will be available to sign copies of his work. The public is invited; light hors d'oeuvres will be served with a cash bar.
Working professionally on commissions and in the studio, Charles has been well received by both critics and collectors. "FINART," a name given to his style and feel, became the header of his studio previously located in Fells Point, Baltimore where it fascinated locals and enthusiasts for over a decade. Charles' studio, now freshly branded "FINNAPOLIS," has now moved to 214 West Street in Annapolis.
EYC Lights Parade posters are considered collectible, so you won't want to miss this chance to get your signed copy on the 12th.
More about our 2014 Lights Parade Poster Artist:
It all began when his mother’s water broke in 1970 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
For Charles, growing up in the outdoors and embracing nature inspired a life long obsession for expressing himself through art. A fisherman and naturalist at heart, Charles’ explorations bring him below and above creating a rich diversity to draw from. Using a painterly realism, he renders his canvases and walls into a contemporary soup of knowledge and spirit. The prolific array of constant works are fiercely provocative and delightfully disturbing. In the paint, both tribal and modern beings meet and mingle with beasts and primal forces. Of course you may just view a sublime and simple trout or tree in morning light, which in its own right is profoundly mystical and a challenge to capture. Paintings are done in oil and or acrylic.
Charles earned his B.F.A. at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1993. His professional credits include album art for Island and Polygram Records, 2D and 3D art for Red Bull Energy Drink, a 25-piece first floor permanent public exhibit of original canvases at Henderson's Wharf in Blatimore, cover art for Fishing and Hunting Journal, and an Artscape Best in Show award, along with dozens of indoor and outdoor murals for civic, corporate, and private clients.
