GVG Contemporary presents an exhibition featuring gallery artists Lori Schappe-Youens and Mary Tomás, in conjunction with Canyon Roads “Passport to the Arts” event, the weekend of May 8, 9 and 10, 2015. Kicking off the weekend is a Friday night reception on May 8th, from 5 to 7 pm.
“Come Join Me Up Here” is a two-person exhibition, featuring the work of Mary Tomás and Lori Schappe-Youens.
Mary Tomás is an oil painter from Dallas, Texas. In this body of work, she captures the subtle moments of spaces that occupy her day; quietude mixed with the staccatos of activity. The effect is a visual conversation, punctuated with her intrigue of line and form, light and shadow. She explores a thick paint modality as she weaves the story between two forces. A longing for contemplative breathing space, while balancing the active moments, is what inspires her work.
