“Dad & Daughter Dynamic Duo”: Lowell Davis and April Davis
“Dad & Daughter Dynamic Duo” celebrates the joyful resonances dancing through the multimedia artworks of Lowell and April Davis—two well-known regional artists with claims to international recognition.
“Rising to fame in the 1970’s, Lowell Davis has been referred to as the “Norman Rockwell of Rural Art”.
Creator of more than three thousand paintings and four hundred figurines (many produce in Scotland), children’s author and autobiographer, visionary of RED OAK II, Lowell now pours his artistic energies into creating outdoor signs seen throughout the Carthage, Lamar, Jasper and Joplin area.
Generously garnished with imagery and color and humor to match, Lowell’s art is stylistically Rockwellesque—snapshots reflecting the simple life of times past.
Lowell Davis is a master at conveying the unique, often amusing characters of people and animals and places and objects, as seen through his twinkling, mischievous eyes which his daughter, April, has inherited.
APRIL BRUNNER DAVIS
As the daughter of Lowell Davis, April’s first language was and continues to be art. Nature is her first source of inspiration—the delicacy of a rose, the beauty of falling water, the graceful lines of a bird’s wings.
A sculptor turned oil painter, April created her earliest bronze when she was five. Encouraged by her father to pursue an art career, today April teaches sculpting and painting classes, while she fills her canvases with images she finds outdoors.
April’s a much loved instructor at artCentral’s artCamp for Kids. As an actively engaged member of southwest Missouri’s arts community, April teaches and exhibits her art for purchase at Cherry’s Art Emporium on the Square in Carthage and at Local Color Art Gallery in Joplin.
