Davis Gallery of Austin, Texas, is pleased to have recently announced its upcoming annual winter group show. It features some amazing artistic talent and beautiful paintings; find out here why viewers shouldn’t have any trouble immersing themselves into these creative worlds.

Creating illusory, three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface such as canvas, linen, paper, or panel has been, perhaps, THE goal of representational painters for millennia. Indeed, each artist has their own unique way of creating depth and space in their works, which is part of the draw for “In Depth,” a winter group show at Davis Gallery in Austin, Texas.

Opening January 20 and continuing through February 24, “In Depth: A Group Show” will feature several of Davis Gallery’s roster of artists, including — among others — Laurel Daniel, Julie Davis, Matthew Fuller, Chris Gray, Denise M. Fulton, David Leonard, and William Montgomery. “Artists will demonstrate how positive and negative space interacts and how specific techniques can produce the illusion of depth,” the gallery suggests. “Each artist has either created new work for this show, or carefully chosen work from the past, which uniquely recognizes ‘In Depth’s’ concept.”

An opening reception will be hosted at the gallery on January 20 from 7-9PM. To learn more, visit Davis Gallery.
