Lynn Boggess exhibition at the Haen Gallery

Boggess RS

Lynn Boggess is one of the most unique and noteworthy American landscape painters of the 21st Century. He resides in West Virginia, a state whose diverse mountains, forests, and rivers provide abundant inspiration for the artist’s plein air paintings. In place of brushes Boggess uses palette knives and trowels to thickly layer the broad sweeping strokes and exquisite fine detail that capture all the colors of the seasons in rushing rivers, snow covered hillsides, and thick forest vegetation. Boggess’ work is recognized throughout the country for its incredible three-dimensional texture, rendered solely in oils. These remarkable landscapes bridge the gap between Abstract Expressionism and Photorealism.

The Haen Gallery is located at 52 Biltmore Avenue between the City Bakery and Chestnut. There is a parking garage at the Aloft hotel across the street, another garage just up the hill, as well as street parking. The gallery is open seven days a week, Mon, Tues & Sat 11am-6pm & Wed-Fri 10am-6pm, Sun 12-5pm.

With locations in Asheville and Brevard, The Haen Gallery offers the work of established artists whose distinctive and unique style sets it apart from ordinary and imitative efforts. Visit the website at
