High Five: Celebrating Five Texas Women Artists

What do a realist vehicle painter, an abstract impressionist, a landscape artist, a whimsical sculptor, and a figurative realist have in common? All are award-winning, technically excellent, smart women who have big things to say. There truly is something for everyone in this show, from photorealism to abstract and everything in between. About the Artists: Brenda Armistead’s animal and fantasy-inspired sculptures each tell a visual story while striving to comfort, amuse, and intrigue the viewer. Stephanie Estrin is an abstract artist whose work explores her inner landscape through vibrant colors, contrasting values and bold compositions. Shannon Fannin is a realist vehicle painter that uses a combination of abstraction and photo realism to bring cars, motorcycles, and other forms of transportation to life. Rhea Pettit is a figurative painter who describes her style as contemporary realism; she slightly abstracts the figure and often juxtaposes two or more subjects to create a different way of looking at people and animals. Christy Stallop’s work is greatly influenced by Central and West Texas. Her work weaves a personal narrative to create a visual biography. The opening reception with the artists takes place April 4 from 1–3:30 p.m.
