Color: Pure and Simple
Color. Each of us has a favorite. Maybe two. Or more. There’s no rhyme or reason as to why we favor one color and shun another. Some of us sigh at the welcoming greys that surround us during a thunderstorm. Others delight at the brightness of a summer garden. Black and white comforts the minimalist.
Color: pure and simple, a series of paintings by Sunny McKinnon, offers pure pigments rendered side by side in pastel. Each painting inviting us to pick and choose, contrast and compare and create a vignette that is ours alone.
The series includes more than 30 pieces. Most of the paintings are 10x10” square, with a few outliers for variety.
The Upstairs Gallery at Arden’s invites you to come, find your favorites and create a collection that is uniquely yours.
Consider the cactus, a longtime Texas icon. Known for its strength and stamina, these thorny beauties possess festive colors, beautiful blooms, and provocative shapes and textures.
In this collection, Ted Cowart takes us on a trip through Texas with works in mixed media on paper and canvas. Each cactus painting has a unique attitude. Each is based in reality, yet portrayed in a more abstract direction.
Cactus Collection will be featured at The Upstairs Gallery at Arden’s during the months of November and December.
