Both accomplished realist painters in technique, their ethereally illuminated subjects occupy a space both of this world and a bit beyond. Shane Scribner focuses on abstraction within the figure using color and Sara Scribner creates an abstraction of space and time by infusing the symbolism in each of her works with a sense of magic.
Sara and Shane Scribner met at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA and married shortly thereafter. Both full-time painters, they share a home studio in Enid, Oklahoma and exhibit their work nationwide.preview show
Join us on closing day of Mallory Page's "A Ponderous Weight (Why did I not discover before that it was nothing?)" Sunday, April 28th at 10:30am for the unique experience of a Sound Bath within the exhibition More information and purchase tickets here.
This exhibition features a new body of large-scale, abstract works and is the second installation of Page’s several part series, A Ponderous Weight, an interpretation of Kate Chopin’s The Awakening. In the gallery's front room, a site specific installation, Initiation Room, interweaves canvas panels behind resin busts of Venus to cover walls, pool onto the floor, and envelop viewers in a sense of space. The second room of the show will feature Page’s stretched canvases. Here, she draws attention to concepts such as opposition and transformation, a meditation of sorts on the antagonistic impulses that define Chopin’s heroine as well as on the inner conflict she experiences while moving from a woman rooted in Creole society toward a life defined by sensuality and candor. Page also imagines here another more mystical transition, in which the female figure emerges from the gulf as Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation who was born from the sea. Recalling the slow movement of water in the Gulf, the works in this show explore lightness, transparency, motion and difference.
Opening reception on Saturday, May 4 from 4 to 7pm
Artist Talk + Happy Hour Thursday, May 2nd at 6pm
Nature has inspired much of local painter Diana Greenberg's fifth show at the gallery, botanical forms appearing in many of these abstract works. Prisms of color break through solemn gray to create a feeling of light and hope, joy and serenity. A series of atmospheric paintings are also included, each a grid representative of a place or time.
Opening reception on Saturday, June 1 from 4 to 7pm
Artist Q&A Saturday, June 1st at 5pm
We are excited to open our sixth solo show with local figurative painter Patrick Puckett titled Monsteras. Referring not only to the foliage depicted, Puckett’s larger than life canvases in Monsteras deploy the color red to lend his singular figures an undeniable presence. This powerful presence is further strengthened by Puckett’s confident interaction of paint application, shape, color and texture.
Born in 1979, Puckett grew up in a log cabin in central Mississippi. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2002. Puckett currently lives and works in Austin, Texas.
