Artist of the Month – February
Roy McLendon, Jr.
The Highlands Art League's Artist of the Month series is proud to feature the artwork of
Roy Algin McLendon Jr on Friday, February 14, at the Yellow House Gallery and Gift Shop
from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Roy is the son of artist Roy McLendon Sr, one of Florida's black
artists, known as 'The Highwaymen'. Though he is not considered one of the original
Highwaymen, Roy's work is also inspired by Florida's stunning atmospheric landscapes,
harking back to simpler times, but with his own distinguishing style.
Roy is known for his renditions of southern subjects and Caribbean scenes, Florida's lush
landscapes, moonlit rivers and lakes, the Royal Poinciana tree, and childhood memories of
home places. Fishermen at work, once an everyday sight in communities, are often
incorporated in his landscapes. He wishes people not just to see what he creates, but feel
his creation as well.
He has been painting for 45 years, and is not much younger than some of the original
Highwaymen themselves. Roy and his father often painted together as he was growing up,
sometimes even working on the same Florida scene from different points of view. His goal
is to make the Highwaymen style more accepted as the fine art that it is, accomplishing this
through the professionalism and dedicated artistry of his work.
The Florida Highwaymen have since held a meeting, and voted to draft a letter requesting that
the Tallahassee Florida Artist Hall of Fame add Roy McLendon Jr to the roster of the Highwaymen
Artists, and he receive the same recognition as the original Highwaymen. He is the only child of the
Highwaymen to have met these qualifications.
The Art League joins with Destination Downtown on Friday, February 14 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm
for the Sip and Shop activities on the Circle. The Friday evening at the Yellow House reception
includes snacks and light refreshments, with live music supplied by local musician Steve Jones.
