Opening Reception: Thursday, April 20 from 7pm to 9pm
McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) will open a new exhibition, With the Grain: Paintings by J.T. Kirkland, on April 13, 2017 at [email protected] This exhibition will feature multipart and shaped paintings on wood. Kirkland’s show runs through June 3, 2017.
Focusing on line, color, form and structure, J.T. Kirkland combines wood and paint into uniquely warm abstract paintings in the minimalist vein. Using the grain of the wood as both guide and essential component, Kirkland incorporates and contrasts the organic nature of the material with the crisp intentionality of hard-edged blocks of color.
