Orisons Fine Art Gallery is pleased to welcome to the gallery two Dallas area emerging artists, Melissa Ellis and Julia Pappas in March 2013.
Their energetic images lure us to the surface of the canvas and remind us of the material presence of paint. Ellis will be showing a collection of her large scale, heavily textured abstracts, which resemble pixelated details of a Seurat painting. Pappas’ similarly expressive brush strokes “allow the paint to be paint” while in the service of figural compositions.
Join us during the March “Second Saturdays” on March 9th from 7 – 10 p.m. Meet these accomplished young women and enjoy complementary beverages and Nothing Bundt Cakes at the gallery, located at 110 E. Louisiana St. in downtown McKinney.
