Lexington Alley, 2009
oil on panel 24 x 24 inches

Upon completion of the forthcoming remodel and renovations, Marty Walker Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings by recent University of North Texas MFA graduate, Sarah Williams, September 12 - October 10.

In anticipation of the exhibit, Sarah Williams' work can be seen at CADD ARTLAB's 'Launch' exhibit, showcasing art by studio art graduate students from Master of Fine Arts programs located in the DFW/Denton area, and in 'Frontroom=Backroom', the new salon-style exhibition at Marty Walker Gallery featuring a selection of superb works from the gallery’s racks including many works that have never before been exhibited.

Sarah William’s work focuses on her roots in rural Midwest America and how the ways of life shape and define the people and the spaces in which they live. The nightscapes in this series of work portray isolated and unremarkable buildings and scenes aiming to capture the emotions connected to a place. These feelings are deepened by William’s use of darkness to edit out extraneous details and the judicious use of illumination to draw the viewer in and highlight surface textures and patterns.
