Sandra Kimzey Wimbish: Stripes, Spots, and Such: a celebration of the animal kingdom

On Display January 4 – February 16, 2024

This exhibition consists of two unique bodies of work, a Two Color series of acrylic canvases, and a selection of  pen and ink animal pieces. 

Two Color Series: This series was inspired by a grainy photograph in the travel section of the local newspaper retelling someone’s African safari. Countless zebras became almost a blur, and caused Sandra to wonder what would happen if you removed all borders and outlines, and forced the viewer’s eye to use the black and white stripes and complete the picture. That was 2010, and in the intervening years she has explored variations with numerous animals that can be reduced to their patterns: giraffes, white tigers, cheetahs, leopards, and of course, the original zebras. 

Animal Ink Works: Portraying animals in pen and ink shows them off from an intense vantage point—where a concrete, defined creature is represented by abstract and overlapping marks, dots, lines, whorls, etc. through layer upon layer of well-placed ink as well as the essential usage of negative space. Viewers are necessarily invited to get up close and personal to each piece in order to take in tiny details, notice the inconspicuous, and discover the less than obvious.

An opening reception on Friday, January 5, 2024 will be held from 5-7pm to celebrate this exhibit along with Owens Daniels’ More Than Just a Picture exhibit in the Welborn Gallery. Refreshments will be served.

Free Admission, all are welcome to attend.
