Rodgers Naylor: The Café Life opens on February 10 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Susan Calloway Fine Arts.  

 

Adhering to a realistic yet painterly style, Naylor paints in an “alla prima” manner, which allows great flexibility in mixing colors and attaining soft edges, fostering a fresh, spontaneous approach to painting. For his upcoming exhibition, Naylor delves into modern day “café society”. In Parisian life in the late 18th and early 19th century, cafés were places of companionship as well as intellectual discourse, and often enough, just frivolous enjoyment. Though we don’t hear the term “café society” often now, the concept and its lifestyle are very much alive today. This exhibition explores the café as a gathering place for people of all ages and walks of life to break bread peacefully together, to enjoy the camaraderie, as well as that extra cup of coffee.  

 

The exhibition is on view from February 10 - March 11, 2017.
