A solo exhibition featuring paintings by Will Henry.
“Will Henry’s exhibition, Watching Paint Dry, features recent paintings that continue the artist’s exploration of the landscape, abstraction, and mark making. Henry’s work is rooted in the history of painting and features atmospheric landscapes with constellations of marks floating on their surface. His gestural swipes of color are the subject of Henry’s work and create a low-fi trompe l’oeil effect, with the cropped sections of the landscape serving as a backdrop for an unfolding narrative. Henry’s connection to these sparse vistas is uprooted by an overlay of lines, swipes, and scribbles, echoing the gestures made on the screens through which we often experience these spaces in contemporary life.
The galleries are open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, 12 to 5 PM. GAC remains committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for visitors while we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to follow social distancing and disinfecting protocols and require face coverings while in the building. ArtWalk events are currently suspended until further notice.”
