January 18 - February 22, 2020
To commence a new year, Barry Whistler Gallery will present a group exhibition of Texas’ paragon abstract artists—at the top of their game. Six artists are included in “Women on Top”: Linnea Glatt, Terrell James, Jessica Sinks, Lorraine Tady, Terri Thornton, and Liz Trosper. Four of these artists (Glatt, James, Tady, and Trosper) are also included in the seminal exhibition, “Texas Women: A New History of Abstract Art”–which features a total of 17 artists–curated by Suzanne Weaver opening at the San Antonio Museum of Art, February 7th , 2020. Women on Top opens at BWG on Saturday, January 18th , 2020, with an opening reception that evening from 6-8PM. The title is derived from Smith’s College’s centennial celebration “A Century of Women on Top”. Terri Thornton stated, “While the title of the exhibition is as provocative as it is true, the work of the women represented here makes a strong case that good art knows itself and in doing so, deserves a place at the top”.
Opening: January 18, 2020 | 6–8 pm
Artist talk: February 15, 2020 | 2–3 pm
