Martha (Squared) | The Nature of Women
May 21 - June 1st, Kerrville, TX
Slate Gray Kerrville presents 'Martha (Squared), The Nature of Women' from May 21st - June 1st, featuring the works of Martha Mans and Martha Rea Baker. For both artists, the outdoors is a place of spiritual revery. Their paintings, however, do not tremble with religositiy. Rather, they speak volumes about the complex nature of art about Nature in a very quiet, but very direct way: some of the images in the show at Slate Gray Kerrville are serene; others, more introspective; but all powerful statements about the disparate talents of the two featured artists.
Whether you are drawn to the non-objective work of Martha Rea Baker or the realism of Martha Mans – or both – what the two women share is a unique ability to luxuriate in and celebrate everyday surroundings in ways that trigger a wide range of emotional responses that can change with a viewer’s mood like the weather. The result is an addictive read of the region of their choice written in glorious colors and textures.

Assorted Works by Lisa Lebofsky
May 27th - June 28th, 2021, Telluride, CO
In partnership with Camp V, WE Arts, Telluride Arts, and New York Academy of Art, Slate Gray presents Assorted Works by Lisa Lebofsky for Mountainfilm Art Walk and June Art Walk. Lisa Lebofsky is a nomadic plein air painter, collaborating with nature and people. She paints the susceptibility of nature, correlating its restlessness with our own human vulnerabilities. Her direct participation with the landscape is vital to imbue a painting with the energy of a specific place, so that viewers can connect viscerally: to move, excite and engage them. Lebofsky is completing an artist residency at Camp V, where she will find inspiration in immersing herself in the environment and culture of Southwestern Colorado. Seeking out areas around the globe that are particularly susceptible to the impacts of climate change, Lebofsky will meet with residents to discuss how their community is impacted, while creating a new body of work with subject matter inspired by the landscape surrounding Naturita, CO. Lebofsky will be in attendance for both the Mountainfilm Art Walk and June Art Walk openings, May 27th from 5-8pm, and June 3rd from 5-8pm.
