Press release from Behnke Doherty Gallery

The Behnke Doherty Gallery is pleased to announce its Fourth Annual Invitational Group Show, which will run from Friday February 1st through Sun., Mar. 31. This year, the exhibit will present the works of twelve diverse artists, spanning paintings, works on paper, sculpture and ceramics. The group includes a wonderful mix of artists including many represented by the gallery as well as several new to us. An opening reception for the artists will take place from 4—7 p.m. on Sat., Feb. 2.

We are delighted to once again be featuring the oil paintings of Souby Boski, Michael Quadland and Matt Wood. They will be joined by Margaret Grimes, who will be exhibiting her work in the gallery for the first time. Works on paper will include drawings by Jack Dunbar, who will be joined by first time exhibitors Inga Britta Mills, Robert Andrew Parker, Alexander Purves and Frederick Wong. Three-dimensional works will feature the ceramics of Elizabeth MacDonald and Uko Morita as well as the metal sculpture of Joe Wheaton.

While each of the twelve artists has a totally unique style, they share among them an intense focus on color, form and texture. Although working in many different mediums, presented together their works induce a fascinating conversation across boundaries and traditions. We are delighted to have the opportunity to present both old friends and new as we open our 2013 season.

Margaret Grimes: "Harrington 6 A.M."
