DESCRIPTION

Sears Peyton Gallery is pleased to present a show of new works by Celia Gerard. This is her second solo exhibition with the gallery.

Using graphite, sumi ink, charcoal, conte crayon, chalk, casein, hand-made watercolors, goat milk gouache, and sandpaper on hand-made watercolor paper, Gerard’s current works present a deeper consideration of the kaleidoscopic geometric imagery and crystalline subtly constructed pictorial space she is known for.

“ Gerard’s white-on-black works lead us into a night where ghostly glass structures loom like memories of dreams.”  -Mona Malarsky, ARTnews, April 2011
