"Available Insights" @ MFA

Mighty Fine Arts presents "Available Insights" featuring new work by Adriana Martinez and Katie Gelinas. This show opens Saturday January 29 and will run till Sunday February 20.

Adriana Martinez "Yo Siento, Yo Creo", 10 7/8x 13 7/8
mixed media

The work of Adriana Martinez offers a compelling respite from the chronic assault of media saturated life. The constant insistence to satisfy our urges and impulses numbs our appreciation to the contemplative moments that lend poetry to life. Ms.Martinez creates pieces that evoke a meditative radiance that is meant to enhance our sense of quietude.

acrylic on paper

The paintings of Katie Gelinas are steeped in surrealist tradition and visual tropes. Her imaginative renderings invoke the spirit of Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington but she shares with Ms.Martinez an inclination towards transcendence. Her images are steeped in a visionary spirit and sincerity that runs counter to the prevailing notions of irony and cynicism.

Mighty Fine Arts is located at 419 N.Tyler between 8th and Davis in the Historic North Oak Cliff Neighborhood of Dallas and Gallery hours are 12-5pm Sat. and Sun. or by appointment: 214-942-5241. For more info: www.mfagallery.com
