Wally Workman Gallery presents "Carol Dawson" opening day
Wally Workman Gallery will present a solo show by Austin watercolorist and writer Carol Dawson. Her fifth show at the gallery will focus on the relationship between birds and water. Birds move through this medium as easily as they move through land, trees, and the upper air. Water as food source, habitat, cleanser, refuge, map: no other species shows such complete mastery of all the elements of our environment.
As a painter, Dawson finds transmitting their experiences an exciting compositional challenge and she aims to dissolve the barriers between them and the human observer. Responding to the 18th and 19th century traditions of natural science illustration, Dawson continues to explore the mystery of the natural world and our evolving relationship.
The exhibition will remain on display through October 4.
