Roger Allan Cleaves received his Bachelors of Fine Art from the University of Memphis and his Masters of Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He also participated in the prestigious Norfolk Summer Residency at Yale University in 2003. He received the Lotterman Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He was included in the International Juried Show at the Visual Arts Center in New Jersey, Ties that Bind at Marshall Arts in 2008, and New Kids on the Block at Project Lodge in Madison.
About the show the artist writes: "Lost Boys is a painting exhibition investigating abstract figuration and narration. This body of work is an excerpt from my Lost Boys series that investigates the troubled children of Neverland. The paintings displayed will be works made by layering oil paint and various drawing materials on wood panels and canvas to achieve a wide array of textures and visual depth."

About Material: Founded by Hamlett Dobbins and Julie Meiman in late 2004, Material is a 19'x16' exhibition space set in the storefront on Broad Avenue in the Binghampton neighborhood of Memphis. Taking the name from Montessori learning tools, Material was built to provide emerging and established artists with an intimate, clean space in which to share their work with Memphis' growing arts community. The programming consists of monthly shows as well as artists' lectures in connection with local colleges and universities. Material has served as a space for young artists to have their first shows, as well as a place for established local and regional artists to test new ideas in a public forum. In addition to serving local artists, Material has hosted artists from Birmingham to Tokyo. Come visit.
