Of Nature | 3 Different Visions of Texas Landscape
Sylvia Benitez, Carol Arnold, Susu Meyer
February 4 - March 4, Kerrville, TX
Slate Gray Kerrville presents Of Nature, an exhibition showcasing 3 different visions of Texas landscape by Hill Country artists Sylvia Benitez, Carol Arnold, and Susu Meyer. All three artists have a profound affinity for Mother Nature in general, but for the Texas landscape in particular. Collectively, the landscapes of Benitez, Arnold, and Meyer explore the sublime and romantic, the magic and mystery of their surroundings in oils, acrylics, and pastels that are at once lush, rapturous, and intimate. Their work is not about mimicry, rather their paintings represent deeply personal outer expressions of a vital inner force which we are privileged to share. The artists' reception at Slate Gray Kerrville takes place on February 20th, from 5-8pm.
Fran J Nagy & Amy Van Winkle | Ancient Influence
February 6th - March 4th
Slate Gray presents Ancient Influence, an exhibit featuring the encaustic paintings of Amy Van Winkle and Fran Nagy’s newest body of work, 1,000 Miles. In this enchanting and contemplative exhibit, both artists pay homage to an ancient influence behind their works. Van Winkle’s choice medium is encaustics, one of the principle styles of painting in the ancient world, and Nagy’s works depict the forced journey of an ancient civilization to assimilate into a new culture. Nagy and Van Winkle will both be in attendance for the opening reception to further share about their philosophies and technique.
