September 13 - October 25, 2014 Jerald Melberg Gallery opens two new exhibitions for artists Thomas McNickle and Mary Frank.   Thomas McNickle is well known as a virtuoso landscape painter but, alongside these representational compositions, he has always been equally compelled to create a body of abstract works.

"Vivian Springford Stain Paintings, 1960-80" and "Kimber Smith, 1970s Paintings" Open at GRAHAM

Released: September 9, 2014

In its inaugural exhibition of the season, Graham presents a selection of Kimber Smith's paintings from the 1970s.  Paintings from this period showcase the artist's employment of a lexicon of forms and shapes.  The seemingly casual feel to the paintings is illusory.  They are in fact the product of a lifetime of planning and consideration.  Every painting has a deep structure embedded with meaning drawn from Smith's life.  The lozenges are roses. The stacked bars are piano keys.  The open triangles are cat ears. His approach successfully achieved that tension ...

Penelope Gottlieb at Heather James

Penelope Gottlieb Paintings on View at Heather James Fine Art in Jackson, WY

Released: September 5, 2014

Penelope Gottlieb’s paintings use John James Audubon’s nature prints as a discourse on the commoditization of the natural world in the 19th century. Painting over preexisting Audubon prints, Gottlieb adds plant life winding around the featured animal as if the creature’s natural habitat has stifled them in a botanical confinement. The resulting blend of historical documentation of avian species with the invasion of plant-life creates a contemporary view on the original intent of the prints. Gottlieb’s marking over the prints acts as an additional invasion on top of her ecological crit...
