Bill Gingles' "Sulmona IV"
See more of his work at billgingles.net
Bill Gingles' paintings include textured surfaces that remind him of surfaces of the old walls, buildings and ruins he's seen in Italy.
"But my aim is not to simply create interesting surface textures," Gingles said. "I'm after the feelings one has when faced with the ancient structures, the weathered and scarred but still standing works of humanity. My paintings are about those parts of our best efforts that do not erode with time."
Gingles' paintings will be part of the Stephen F. Austin State University College of Fine Arts exhibit "Painting in the Gestural Tradition." The opening on Saturday, Jan. 22, will include a 6 p.m., reception and a 7 p.m. gallery talk by Don Reichert, retired professor of art from Manitoba, Canada, and one of the exhibiting artists.
The show will remain on view through Thursday, March 24, at The Art Center, 329 E. Main Street in downtown Nacogdoches. More info: 936-468-2801.
