SMGA Exhibition Opening: Tom Stanley
August 31 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm CDT
The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art is pleased to present the exhibition, Tom Stanley: Painting and Drawing and Discovering a Practice, August 31 to October 3, 2023. There will be an artist lecture on Tuesday, October 3, at 4:30 p.m. in Gorgas Library’s Yellowhammer Room (second floor), and a closing reception following the lecture from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., directly across the street in the gallery.
This exhibition was conceived as an examination of the artist’s studio practice. Stanley works in series with limitations of size, color and imagery and uses recurring shapes such as triangles and figurative elements of houses and boats. Typical media are acrylic on canvas and on paper. Although using common graphic strategies like mechanical drawing, silhouette, and sgraffito, his painting relies on evolving techniques that he has discovered in the process of making. READ MORE.
