Please Join us at the Artist’s Opening Reception
Saturday October 4, 6:30-9:00PM
Murchison has spent a lifetime working
with fragmented "real" stories about relationships
and the emotions that accompany them such as passion,
love, sadness, solitude, and loneliness.
“I always begin a new work with the certainty
that a figure will emerge which will cause the excitement
that encourages me to bring a canvas to life. This new
body of work was painted in that manner. Most of the
paintings, I feel, are more fully figurative, less gestural
and have smoother and more even brushstrokes and color
than some of my previous work. I can’t get away
from painting people, they interest me.”
- Betty Murchison
