Emerging Artist Gallery
The Bossier Arts Council is proud to present the artwork of Cam Owen.
The exhibit will be displayed in Bossier Art Council's Emerging Artist Gallery March 2nd until March 31st with a reception on March 22nd at 6pm.
Owen began drawing when he was 8 and it has remained a part of his life every since. "I always start my art with a blank slate. I never have a plan when I sit down to draw. I like to think of myself as a freestyle artist". This is the artistic approach of Minden, Louisiana native Cam Owen. He continued, "I take what I'm feeling and put it into my artwork. I think of my art as an escape from reality. He has also had experience as editor of Minden High's yearbook. In December 2010, Owen graduated from Bossier Parish Community College with an Associate Degree in Telecommunications with a concentration in Film and TV production. "Since then art has remained a steady focal point of my free time", stated Owen. And it shows, with him gaining experience working 8 films and being featured on MTV's Caged for 4 episode, with the 7th featuring his first art show.The artist says that bright colors are his specialty but he also has a soft spot for black and white. Owen's favorite medium is oil and charcoal pastel, yet he experiments with digital paintings and wax figures. "I feel like my art expresses myself as an individual and my personality definitely shines through my work", said Owen.
