Fletcher/Copenhaver Fine Art
John Copenhaver ((b. 1954))

John Copenhaver is a native of Virginia and has degrees in art education from Virginia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth University. He also studied painting at The Art Students’ League in New York City and has been a practicing artist for several decades. His work is in a number of private collections in the United States and Europe.

In 1993, Copenhaver joined Joel Fletcher and formed Fletcher/Copenhaver Fine Art, specializing in American and European modern figural art of the 20th and 21st centuries. They deal privately and exhibited at a number of major antique and design shows throughout the United States, traveling to Europe at least once a year in search of interesting inventory.

They co-curated the exhibition Moses Soyer: My Message is People in 1996 at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach, Florida, and the Polk Museum in Lakeland, Florida. They also co-curated the exhibition Moses Soyer: From Social Realism to Romantic Realism at The Ridderhof-Martin Gallery of the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia in 2001. In 2012, they helped to organize the exhibition, curated by James Abbott: Alix Ayme: European Perception and Asian Poeticism at the Evergreen Museum & Library of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

"These drawings reflect my interest in observing how people interact with each other, how inner thoughts and veiled inner conversations are reflected in facial expression and body language. So much is expressed and communicated this way. Our perception and feelings of humanity toward one another are formed by these non-verbal cues. The quiet, unguarded moments observed are often those that offer the most insight into each other. They are a kind of unspoken language we attempt to understand and interpret. I attempt to do this through my art."
