Amy Newland's "Ducks," 2015, at Red & White Gallery
Kathleen McShane's "Little," at Red & White Gallery
Pat Johnson's "Waiting for Reincarnation," at Red & White Gallery
Women artists are a hot topic, and Red & White Gallery in Fayetteville — a mecca for respected mid-career and senior Texas talents — curates a unique take. The premise is based on a long-standing friendship and the camaraderie that develops over the noontime table. Painter Amy Newland, collagist Kathleen McShane, and ceramicist Pat Johnson all reside in the environs of Fayette County while managing notable careers in Texas and elsewhere.
They convene regularly for lunch in La Grange to discuss topics ranging from the workings of the art world to their own practices and beyond. Now the trio is rounded up for an exhibition at Red & White that occupies the plum fall spot as season opener.
“Table for Three,” through October 29, at Red & White Gallery, 102 W. Main, Fayetteville; gallery hours 4 to 8 pm Friday, 10 am to 8 pm Saturday.
