Monday Moments - Texas Women Artists

Marking Space/ Holding Time - works by Texas Women Artists - was a lovely little exhibit in the Irving  Arts Center. I try to get over to these galleries because the curator does a fabulous job.  It only takes about thirty to forty minutes to see and enjoy the  works. 

This picture is "Out of Order" by Ellen Frances Tuchman.  It's mixed media on watercolor paper - acrylic, colored pencil, vintage matchbooks, hand painted paper quills, beads, buttons, cabochons, and thread.  Quite fascinating

"Guardians" by Sherry Owens is crepe myrtle, bailing wire, dye, and wax.   Wow!
"Garden 1 and Garden 2" by Mihee Nahm is oil on linen.  So calm and lovely

 "Between the Worlds" by Dawn Waters Baker just glows.  It's oil on gold leaf and canvas

These were just a few of the works that  caught my eye. The talent is tremendous. Such variety and creativity. 

You need a stroll?  Go find a local art center or gallery to enrich your heart. 


  1. Yes, I agree with you and Alex. This last one is exquisite.

    1. It was a truly "Wow" from me when I rounded a corner and saw that one. The others were excellent, but that one stunned the eyes.

  2. Hi Joanne - lots to think about I expect ... reminding me I have six months to be able to look at our Contemporary Art exhibitions at the Towner and in and around the locality ... 'Guardian's' looks to be a really interesting piece of work ... I'd love to see it - cheers Hilary

    1. Indeed- the artist put a lot of thought into the creations. You’d enjoy this exhibit a lot.
