encaustic monotype flash painting on canvas  
 
     
    Recipient of the 2014 Huntington Prize award, Winston Lee Mascarenhas is presenting a new body of work titled "Carnival Dance". This body of work, composed of encaustic applied to paper as well as board, is an example of Lee's continuation of pushing the limits and exploring new techniques and possibilities of his use of wax. His unconventional techniques and his willingness to explore has uncovered many different surfaces and textures with both opaque and translucent applications. Mascarenhas comments that in this exhibition "the viewer will find expressions of exuberance and affirmations of life through color and movement as well as dark serious studies". This contrast is a signature of Mascarenhas’ work. His particular dedication and exploration of encaustic has brought him to the forefront in his field. Winston has been invited to participate in many nationally acclaimed Residencies, including the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT. His work is included in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and also the Brooklyn Art Library, Brooklyn, NY. Mascarenhas is a retired anesthesiologist and a classical pianist.

    Jeri Ledbetter    "Trovati II"    48" x 60"   oil on board  
     
    Jeri Ledbetter, born in Shreveport, Louisiana now resides on the banks of the Mississippi River in Memphis, TN. She comments that "living on the river, I find oddities that are inspiring. I see man-made structures, a fence, a barge, the cobble stones all striving for survival with water, wind, vines and time. The contrast of, and interplay between, industry and nature are of great interest to me as an artist." Ledbetter’s abstract paintings reflect this attitude and feeling. The colors often are taken directly from the banks of the river. Her paintings are stark, defined and at the same time full of motion and emotion. They are minimal, void of bold color but bold in the fact that they are composed of marks or brush strokes that are from involuntary or free hand unduly controlled by plan or preconceived idea. With an extensive list of exhibitions and invitational events and awards, Ledbetter’s paintings can be found in many national corporate collections along with private collections across the country.

    Linda McCall    "Opportunity Knocked"  48" x 60"   oil on canvas
 
     
    Dallas artist Linda McCall is presenting a new body of work. This will be her 5th exhibition with Craighead Green. "The paintings in this body of work relate a sense of memory of a time, a place, and/or an event," comments McCall. Her paintings are compositions of dimly lit street scenes, interior views through a doorway or window and all are recollections of her many travels around the world. McCall's use of the paint to reflect her memory of a particular place is always inclusive of the atmosphere created by the light or time of day. Her ability to recreate this mood by streaming light falling down a narrow alley or through a doorway makes her work unique and full of mystery. Her style is very painterly. You see the brush strokes on the board, the paint is rich in color and in texture. Part of each painting may seem a bit abstract and expressionistic but at the same time the viewer is able to digest all of the information McCall presents and the painting then becomes very realistic. This latest body of work explores movement and an even greater use of color than previous works. Formerly the chair of the art department at Ursuline Academy, McCall is a full time practicing artist and has been an important part of the Texas art community for many years. McCall received her BFA from SMU and her MFA at the University of North Texas.
