GUT FEELINGS, PAINTINGS BY RHONDA MANLEY

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 6 PM | HEY I LIKE IT HERE

In GUT FEELINGS, Marfa artist Rhonda Manley utilizes drawing and painting techniques to explore discontinuity, color, and texture within compositions. Inspired by the palette of the high desert, Manley intuitively applies transparent washes of color to direct the viewer’s eye through the work while simultaneously challenging them to connect the disconnected.

Opening viewing and refreshments 6 PM - 8 PM.
