Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, who was born in British India, studied fine art in England, and first gained notoriety as an artist in 1970’s New York — garnering important solo exhibitions and museum shows — has been living and creating art in Dallas since 1995. For her long-anticipated, first-ever Dallas solo exhibition, Bradshaw-Smith presents Finding Daphne, a series of paintings in gouache and large-scale mixed-media fabric collage inspired by sensuous forms found in crepe myrtle trees.

Some may ask why I choose to live and work in the world of objects…
it is the only way I can think of to remold the crushing realities of life.

— Robin Ragin, 2016

Robin Ragin presents Upstart Crow, which came about as the artist was in the final stages of dismantling the studio of her mentor of 15 years, David McManaway, six years after his passing. Through deep contemplation, she considered this task to be his last lesson in the profound possibilities held within objects left behind by others, thus inspiring her latest series of assemblages.
