Artists I Love

Today I want to talk about an artist I love, her new show in Boston, and a gallery walk in Dallas.

First I want to introduce you to Fay Chandler. She has a show currently hanging in the Boston Center for the Arts titled: Just as I am: a fifty year survey. I invite you to visit her website. Friends of ours here in Dallas are actually from Boston and it was through them that I met Fay a few years ago. Fay has been painting since the '60's and this show has pieces dating all the way back to her days in grad school as well as many new pieces. It offers a rare peek at this artist's journey, You will see paintings on canvas, mixed media works on paper, and sculptures made of found objects. To me her work is whimsical and compelling. Sweet and yet so interesting. She presents a colorful, serene world I want to explore. A place I always want to spend time. At 88 she is still productive and original and a role model for me and many others.

Closer to home, here in Dallas this Saturday is the Dallas Art Dealers Association Fall Gallery Walk from 2:00 to 8:00. Our neighbors at the fabulous Sun to Moon Gallery will be participating.
