Frances McCormack: Above and Below

Gilman Contemporary 661 Sun Valley Rd, Sun Valley

"I am almost never satisfied with a painting until it has surprised me in some way, and probably after working on it for long while, weeks or months sometimes...This happens when the image I am chasing on the canvas suddenly suggests another direction—color, orientation even—and it is so compelling I am willing to undo weeks of work to try to integrate this upstart outlier, this strange event." - Frances McCormack Frances McCormack is a Professor Emerita of Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute who's work as an abstract painter draws on the history of gardens and landscape design. Her paintings are invented spaces or interior theaters that are essentially images of the process of growth and transformation within a contained space. She has sought out these spaces or walled gardens in Rome at the Villa d'Este and Villa Lante, at the Alhambra in Spain, the Topkai Palace in Istanbul, in Mexico at the houses of the architect Luis Barragan, or Santa Barbara at Ganna Walska's LotusLand.

FRANCES B. ASHFORTH

Hemmings Gallery 340 Walnut Ave, Ketchum

'LAY OF THE LAND' An exhibition by FRANCES B. ASHFORTH at Hemmings Gallery on 340 Walnut Avenue, Ketchum Come meet the artist and celebrate the OPENING NIGHT on FRIDAY 9/1 from 5:00-7:30pm! "Land, water, mountains and deserts are what inspire Frances B. Ashforth. Her passion for fly fishing and time spent in remote places has allowed her to experience sparsely populated and wild lands across the United States. In her latest show 'Lay of the Land' at Hemmings Gallery, Ashforth’s paintings, drawings and waterbase monotypes reflect the geography and geology of intersecting habitats that she has visited and studied. She often orients her compositions along a strong horizon line, exploring its relationships within land, water and sky. Ashforth states, “I am acutely aware of the tension and balance within that line. Weather patterns and time of day temper this balance and translate to composition.” She manipulates light, perspective and contrasts within the elements of the studied habitats. Her work can appear deceptively simple and spare, yet by focusing on the details and editing the composition, Ashforth’s work evokes memory and knowledge that can only evolve from the focused study of a particular landscape."
