Frances Dodd:  Compelling Color

Hoag Gallery | September 23 – November 12, 2017

Fran Dodd considers color to be her passion. These colors seen in nature will be enhanced or invented entirely!  Fran looks for small fragments of beauty in the landscape - those moments that take the breath away in awe and wonder.  Interpreting the landscape from her own viewpoint, she hopes to engage the viewer to stop and experience a little of the excitement and joy felt while painting.

Fran lives in Pueblo West with her husband, photographer Allan McConnell.

Luster:  Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting

White Gallery | Summer 2019

The birth of the modern car occurred over 150 years ago in 1860 in Germany.  In the United States, Henry Ford Company was established in 1901. A year later it morphed into Cadillac Motor Company which Ford left, along with the rights to his name. A new Ford Motor Company emerged in 1903 in Detroit with backing from a dozen investors, including the Dodge brothers. The same year, 1903, Harley-Davidson, was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Much has changed since those early automotive years, but perhaps nothing more so than America’s love affair with cars and motorcycles, which has expressed itself culturally and artistically in so many ways.
