PC Moment: Colorful paintings by Donna Moylan are the perfect start for summer. Moylan’s premier exhibition at Barbara Davis resulted in overwhelming praise from the attendees. Art lovers mingled among the artist’s energetic and contemporary landscape paintings. With minute details obscured in her work such as a small bird, spectators were captivated with discovery. Her black-and -white works using mixed media on linen, served up an intricate and sensual representation of nature, edged in Surrealism.
Moylan is a graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston and has studios in New York as well as Houston. She began her career in Italy as a fine artist and has exhibited extensively through Europe. The exhibition is on view until July 1.
