‘dunno it’s painterly’

I used to know what paint was (pigment plus binder) until I saw someone “paint” with linseed oil binder alone. It’s the Wild West out there. “What’s the show about? Dunno. It’s painterly though,” said gallery director Angie Reed Garner. “It … was an experiment. What if I put paintings by all seven gallery painters in the same room? Will they fight, harmonize, destroy each other, amplify? It was better than any of that; the show reminds me of walking in the woods where no tree branch or rock could ever seem out of place.” The exhibition artists are Suann Childers, Tim Crowder, Angie Reed Garner, Joyce Garner, Will Garner, MaLynda Poulsen and Wendi Smith. —Jo Anne Triplett
