Sarah Ferguson + James Andrew Smith

June 4 - July 2, 2016

Preview Happy Hour + Artist Talk Thursday, June 2nd at 6pm

On Saturday, June 4th, Wally Workman Gallery will open a two-person show with painters Sarah Ferguson and James Andrew Smith. Ferguson is an Austin, Texas based artist who experiments with color gradation and geometric shapes in a myriad of patterns. Smith is a Tulsa, Oklahoma based artist whose still lifes draw upon the traditional Dutch painters, while re-framing them within the context of American Realism. Although their subject matter is quite different, the precise execution of their craft is quite similar. Viewing their works side by side brings a heightened appreciation to the relationship between the eye and the hand and the craft that they can defyingly produce.
