Works from the masterful Cecy Turner will grace the walls of this gallery during the month of May. Where?
If there is any artist who specializes in the subtle effects of reflected light on different textures, it’s Cecy Turner. Turner’s magnetic paintings are widely collected throughout the United States for their vivacious surfaces, beautiful colors, carefully observed compositions, and much more. The newest works from this modern master will be on view at The Artists’ Showplace Gallery in Dallas, Texas, from May 6 through 28.

The show features a number of her newest works, and a particular highlight is “When Day Dissolves.” Set deep within a mountainous wilderness, this winter landscape sends chills down the spine as the viewer can nearly feel the crisp bite of the air. However, this sensation is almost instantly balanced through the warm glow of a dying sun, its last rays of light peering through the distant mountains.
A reception for the exhibition will be held on Saturday, May 7, where visitors can meet the artist while enjoying snacks and beverages. To learn more, visit The Artists’ Showplace Gallery.
