Gourlay Welch 2013

THE ART OF SHELIA GOURLAY AND MARTIN WELCH
Mar 1-April 12, 2013, Roger D. Malkin Gallery
This exhibit features two different artists with two very different styles. Shelia Gourlay, originally from Greenville, is a painter devoted to process, “Each step, each imprint creates a record and all remains evident.” After spending some time in Greenville, Martin Welch now resides in New Orleans. He is known for his signature use of red and his work reflects his life on the MS Gulf Coast. Artwork will remain up until April 12. Artwork will be available for purchase.
