Dutch and still life traditions reign supreme at Wally Workman in Texas this month, with an enticing group exhibition of works by the acclaimed Sarah Ferguson and James Andrew Smith.
It’s impossible to ignore an exhibition in which the names James Andrew Smith and Sarah Ferguson are included. Indeed, this is case through July 2 at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, Texas. The works of the two artists will present the viewer with differing styles and approaches to the canvas, Ferguson preferring artistic experimentation with color gradation and geometric shapes while Smith’s pictures are firmly rooted in Dutch still life traditions.

The gallery suggests, “Although their subject matter is quite different, the precise execution of their craft is quite similar. Viewing their works side by side brings a heightened appreciation to the relationship between the eye and the hand and the craft that they can defyingly produce.”
