Patrick Puckett: Daydreamers

Patrick Puckett: Daydreamers . May 7-29, 2022

Puckett's paintings are known for their bold colors and languid figures, executed with confident interaction between paint application, shape, color and texture. In this new body of work, the artist plays with patterns to push and pull on the picture plane particularly in the foliage, the interior and the subjects' dress. This use of pattern competes for attention and adds an active element to the otherwise passive pose of the sitter -- emanating a sense of dynamism to postures of leisure.

Established in 1980 and located in a 120 year old historic house in Austin's art district, the Wally Workman Gallery specializes in emerging and collected talent. Known for encouraging their artists' professional and creative growth, the gallery has advanced local artists onto the national stage for decades. It is the combination of these long-standing relationships and the potential of new partnerships that make the gallery's program dynamic and accessible. The gallery has two stories of exhibition space where one can view the 50+ artists currently represented, including the contemporary talents of Sarah Ferguson, Joyce Howell and Will Klemm as well as the figurative work of Patrick Puckett and America Martin. 

Parking is available in the lot behind the gallery, accessed from the alley off Blanco and Harthan Streets. There you will find three dedicated spots as well as other parking options. Unrestricted street parking is available on Blanco St. and parking is allowed after 7pm on Harthan St.
