Art and Science: The Paintings of James Vredevoogd


Root Hall
Open April 21, 2018 through June 22, 2018

James Vredevoogd, a native of Michigan, taught painting, sculpture, and performance art at Edinboro College in Pennsylvania for 32 years. His painting style is self-described as "Surreal Realism" in that he paints images that appear dreamlike or surreal in a realistic manner. Relying on scientific theory, literature, and philosophy, his paintings are as beautiful as they are enigmatic and invite the viewer to "read" his narratives on canvas. A neighbor to the west, Jim Vredevoogd and his wife Jeanette (also an artist) have called Dunnellon home for several years now.
