Ted CoConis: Masterpiece

Lanning, a Bryant Nagel Gallery is pleased to welcome back acclaimed artist Ted CoConis and to present many long-awaited masterworks. Ted CoConis is in the Illustrator’s Hall of Fame and had a storied career painting iconic illustrations for film posters such as Hair, Fiddler on the Roof, Man of La Mancha and more, including the 1986 cult classic Labyrinth; his paintings graced book covers for Vladimir Nabokov, James Michener and other prominent authors. For decades now, Ted CoConis has painted only fine art, capturing the lives of his subjects with breathtaking depth and complexity. CoConis has mastered the technique of layering near-translucent layers of oil paint one atop another until a viewer is convinced they see well beyond the surface of his canvas. Ted CoConis brings us reflections and reality, imagination and lyricism. We invite all of you to attend this Major Spring Opening - and to be audience to a special "artist interview" at 6:30 that evening. Join us and take this rare opportunity to visit with Ted CoConis.
