An­nual fall show

Western Art Collector - - CONTENTS -

Each Septem­ber, In­sight Gallery in Fred­er­icks­burg, Texas, hosts its an­nual Fall Group Show to kick off the sea­son of new ex­hi­bi­tions. The show will in­clude work by all 60 of its gallery artists, with Michael Ome Un­tiedt named the 2019 fea­tured artist. Ac­cord­ing to the gallery, “Un­tiedt’s work, its ex­pres­sive col­ors, ex­pres­sion­is­tic brush­works and meta­phoric im­agery, tell a won­der­ful story. In his paint­ing he at­tempts to ex­plain his deep con­nec­tions to the West­ern land­scape us­ing the color, brush­strokes and sym­bolic sub­ject mat­ter of the paint­ings.”

On view in the ex­hi­bi­tion will be sev­eral works by Un­tiedt, in­clud­ing two buck­ing bronco stud­ies: Study, The Header and Study, The Healer. The paint­ings show the horse and rider

in the desert, the rider with his lasso in hand.

Also in­cluded in the show will be pieces by Phil Bob Bor­man, Jeremy Browne, Mary Ross Buch­holz, Les­lie Duke, Ge­orge Hall­mark, Mark Ha­worth, Kyle Ma, Clive Tyler and Jie Wei Zhou, to name a few.

Robert Pum­mill’s Sun­set on a Rocky Slope is one of the land­scapes fea­tured in the show. The paint­ing de­picts the hall­mark sub­ject of the artist’s oeu­vre: Texas blue­bon­nets. Of his work, the gallery says, “Pum­mill’s use of light com­ing through the trees and into the fields of Texas wild­flow­ers has be­come one of the things he is best known for. Although there is end­less in­spi­ra­tion in the Texas Hill Coun­try each spring, with flow­ers blan­ket­ing the hill­sides and road­ways, most of what Bob paints sim­ply comes from his head. There is rarely a day that passes that he doesn’t sit down at the easel or with his sketch­book and say, ‘What’s next?’”

Wildlife scenes will also be in the show, such as Brian Grimm’s Head Turner. De­scrib­ing the paint­ing, Grimm says, “Head Turner is a scene that is about the beauty of the Texas Hill Coun­try where the deer are so preva­lent. A stand­out buck like this is more likely to be en­coun­tered in the early morn­ing or late day as in this scene.”

This year’s Fall Group Show will take place Septem­ber 6 to 27, with the artist re­cep­tion open­ing night from 6 to 8 p.m.
