McMurtrey Gallery presents Sandi Seltzer Bryant and Troy Dugas opening reception
McMurtrey Gallery will present two new exhibitions: Sandi Seltzer Byrant: New Works and Troy Dugas: New Works.
Houston artist Sandi Seltzer Bryant has been creating abstract artworks for over 30 years. Her work has changed mediums over time but has always remained engaging, alluring, and visually striking. In her newest series of works, Bryant has meticulously and intuitively selected from hundreds of handmade papers from over twenty countries to create bold mixed media works on paper and canvas. Layering bands of texture, color, and form Bryant leads us into an abstract process of discovery.
Troy Dugas is known for his intricate works that often resemble stained glass windows or ancient mandalas. In the last year he has continued to incoproate product labels in his work but has now introduced acrylics, sanding, drawing, and other mixed media materials into these collages. The work has become more layered, looser, and intuitive. The works become a delicate balance between the machine made and the delicacy of the artist's hand:
Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through October 17.
