José Parlá and Wendy White exhibition: "Performing Painting"

Gutstein Gallery

Savannah, GA

201 E. Broughton St.


"Performing Painting" highlights two artists whose practice offers new perspectives on the act of painting with a focus on mark making and gesture. José Parlá and Wendy White have garnered critical attention for their large-scale, colorful paintings that are in dialogue with both urban visual language and fine art.

In their own unique styles that reference elements of calligraphy, collage, architecture and the urban environment, the paintings by Parlá and White connect the historical traditions of painting to today's visually dynamic world.

Parlá studied in SCAD's painting department from 1990-92, and White earned a B.F.A. in fibers from SCAD in 1993.

Generous support for this exhibition is provided by Thomas and Jeanne Townsend in memory of Alex Townsend.
