Friends of Marin Center Gallery
Kay Russell and Millecent Tompkins
On view April 10 through May 31, 2019
This spotlight exhibit features the paintings of Kay Russell and Millecent Tompkins.
Kay Russell’s paintings are a composite of recollections and an evolution of the familiar. Her paintings have grown from landscape representation toward the portrayal of spirit and atmosphere of place. She adds rain to the landscapes to convey the meditative poetry of the moment and the essence of atmosphere.
Millecent Tompkins works in a Magic Realist style taking photographs from nature and using photographic techniques for highly detailed under-painting with superimposed oil paint. She works in ink and oil on wood panels, or canvas for the larger motifs. She creates faux surfaces such as marble, walnut, burled wood, and crackalure and often includes “Visual Quotations” from the Great Masters or “Literary Quotations” in her works.
This exhibit is on display in the Friends of Marin Center Gallery, in the Marin Center Exhibit Hall. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm and select weekends when the room is not reserved. Closed Holidays. Please email email@example.com to ensure availability.
