Installation views of Jim Richard: Darn That Dream | March 2016 Exhibition at Arthur Roger Gallery
Working from location, memory and sometimes imagination, Lisa Sanditz composes vibrantly colored landscapes and nature-inspired works that explore the complex coexistence of mankind and natural forces.
Wayne Gonzales is a self-described analytic painter. His work addresses the pliancy of photography and its relationship to history and memory. He culls source images online and from his personal collection, and dissects them to understand the various physical and emotional layers within before reassembling their valued parts on canvas.
Amy Feldman creates seemingly simple, large-scale gray abstractions notable for their visual impact and droll sense of humor. She explores how images and signs are perceived and distilled, and then draws attention to humanness in her work through its iconic language and subtle variation.
Cheryl Donegan is an American conceptual artist especially known for her video works that address issues of art politics, particularly the clichés of the female body. At the invitation of Jim Richard, Donegan presents two videos, Head (1993) and Lieder (2000), both exercises in role-playing and exposure.
Darn That Dream is Jim Richard’s ninth exhibition with the gallery. Featured are small- to large-scale works rendered in Flashe, oil and gouache, on canvas, linen and paper. The works, created over the last few years, continue the artist’s remarkable series of paintings that depict high style domestic interiors flecked with period furniture, kitsch objects, and works of art usually with a modernist flavor.

Furthering the theme of John Hartman’s 2013 solo exhibition with the gallery, City Portraits – New Orleans presents paintings of aerial views of the city and the surrounding parishes. The small- to large-scale works on panel and linen reflect the artist’s unique and vibrant color palette, and reveal his enduring esteem for the city and her contours.
