Art In The Moment: Life and Times of Adger Cowans
Renowned artist, photographer and native of Columbus, OH, Agder W. Cowans, received a B.F.A. in photography from Ohio University. He furthered his photographic education at the School of Motion Picture Arts, and the School of Visual Arts, Film Editing in New York. Cowans worked with artist legends Gordon Parks, Lillian Bassman, Ben Somoroff and others, is the recipient of the John Hay Whitney Fellowship, and the Lorenzo il Magnifico Al Carriera in recognition of a distinguished career at the 2001 Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art. “Adger Cowans is one of America’s finest photographers and fine painters. Through film and paint, his keen sensitive eye hauntingly reveals things, places and moments that make up the bonfires of our lives. His individualism sets him apart—simply because he follows his own convictions. His photography and paintings go as far as IMAGERY can without actually speaking. Mr. Cowans acquired the freedom to master himself and obviously became free the moment he chose to be.” ~ Gordon Parks. Come early and enjoy this Sunday event.
