Martha Spak Gallery is pleased to present Conversations in Color, an important collective exhibition featuring four artists working with a variety of media creating large scale paintings. Focusing on their most recent works, the exhibition runs from July 27 to August 31, September 6, 2022.

The Conversations in Color exhibition fosters the dialogue between artistic expressions and mediums. This show aims to visit the flow of creative energy stirring within each of these contemporary artists. The exhibition pays tribute to the selections at the gallery featuring recent works by Jennifer Duncan, Octavia Frazier, Marthe McGrath and Kay Walsh.

Bold, layered and saturated, the art conveys an emotional message each artist has cultivated through years of experimentation and artistic growth. Artist Jennifer Duncan pulls loose landscapes into abstract directions. Martha McGrath plays with textures and balance piling the weight of paint into overlapping unequal edges. Octavia Frazier engages with layering torn and cut paper on top of paint while leaving space to see what is hidden below. Kay Walsh magnifies her own notion of power with vivid color and in a structured geometry way.

This exhibition marks a unique occasion to celebrate the artists who have marked the success of the gallery, and introduce new artistic selections to the public. A reception for the artists will be held August 11 from 6-8pm. This event is free and open to the public. This exhibition can be viewed online and at the gallery. Inquiries and purchases can be made both online at and at the gallery as well.
