Houston artist Terrell James is well known to the Dallas audience. However, this exhibition will provide an unusual opportunity to view two mural sized works never exhibited in Texas. The title, SOTOL VIEW, references a visit to the Big Bend and the inspiration it had on her work. Paintings on canvas and works on paper (Field Studies) from 2010 to the present will also be included. This show marks the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.
