ELEMENTAL the show is currently scheduled to run at the Jepson Center until September 14 and Vann is currently considering options for an even larger exhibition of his work to go on tour. Critics have described the work in the show as everything from “the work of a master” to “an excellent example of real painting.”
In addition to Vann’s art, the book ELEMENTAL, The Power of Illuminated Love, features corresponding poetry by well-known author Aberjhani. It also includes critical assessments of the artist’s work by Telfair Museum director Steven High, writer Bill Dawers, collector Steve Bowman, and Vann himself.
