Lavarne Ross Works on Paper
January 18, 2014 - April 27, 2014Graphics Gallery
This exhibition features works on paper by Flint native Lavarne Ross. After selling his first piece of art at the young age of 12, Ross knew that he would spend his entire life doing what he loved—making art. Ross feels it's best to "paint what you know," and his art features familiar landscapes and people from the city of Flint. Historic memories are prominent in Ross' art from the electric trolleys that used to run through the city, to the former S. S. Kresge store downtown, and even the old Buick plant that is now just a field. Lavarne Ross: Works on Paper features 19 works of art including pencil, chalk, acrylic, and watercolor.
