Andrew Durham Gallery (formerly Studio 1821) will host an exhibition of recent works by Ann Stautberg and Frank X Tolbert 2.

This will mark Ann and Frank's first show together featuring both of their works since their 1978, show at DW Gallery, in Dallas, Texas. Although married, they have always maintained separate practices, and this show commemorates many decades of their lives together.

In her current exhibition, Stautberg continues with the work she first addressed in 2017. Her work has continued to reflect and evolve through the use of silhouetted botanical shapes that have an underlying quality reflective of the mood of the times. She works with film that is then scanned & printed with archival ink onto canvas, hand painted with translucent oils & then stretched.

Frank X Tolbert 2 presented his Texas Bird Project in 2015 at Studio 1821, and this new body of work is a continuation on that work. In this imagery Tolbert pays homage to the underdog of birds, the grackle, a bird that he is attracted to because of its strong silhouette, intelligence, iridescence, and odd vocalizations. Frank works on canvas in oil sticks, oil paints, and pencils.

Both artists have shown in the United States and internationally. Their works are in many prestigious collections, and included in major museums.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until April 29.
