> DESCRIPTION

Take a ride with Margaret W. Gallegos and you may never know where the next stop is, but you will love the journey.  The artist’s new work is a joyful tumble of shapes, an explosion of airy color, and a solid dose of playfulness.  Carefree?  Flights of fancy?  Maybe, maybe not.  Underlying Gallegos’ work is a seriousness, a knowledge that we can never fully escape the problems of our world.  However, with these new paintings, Gallegos indulges some reverie.  Shapes play against each other.  They float in embracing atmospheres, sweeping and swirling, taking flight as if caught in a wondrous tornado, dancing across ever-evolving landscapes.  Color vibrates.  Brushstrokes search out hidden pleasures.  These are paintings that speak of a love for life: curious, bold, whimsical but firmly planted, cheerfully sharing yet teasingly elusive.
