An exhibition of work by Little Rock artists, Dennis and Jason McCann, will open in the Kennedy Gallery of the Arts &Science Center for Southeast Arkansas with a free reception and gallery talk by the artists from 5-7 p.m. Sept. 11.
The exhibition focuses on architectural scenes by the father and son pair. Dennis McCann tightly controls his pastel depictions of residential landscapes, while Jason McCann favors loosely handled mixed-media renderings of industrial and urban settings.
Dennis McCann received his bachelor and master of arts degrees in painting and drawing from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He has achieved considerable recognition as a regional artist. His work has been awarded in regional and national juried exhibitions and is included in numerous private and corporate collections. He was also the recipient of a 2002 Individual Artist Fellowship from the Arkansas Arts Council. Dennis is a captain with the Little Rock Fire Department in the Community Outreach and Public Education Program.
Jason McCann holds a bachelor of arts in education and master of arts degree in painting and drawing. Since 1995, his artwork has been displayed in numerous shows and exhibitions across the southeast United States.
