Women & Their Work presented the exhibit Painters x 3: Joan Fabian, Faith Gay, and Corinne McManemin through May 11th. These three Texas artists have unique painting styles with some similar stylistic affinities.
All three artists created abstract painting and drawings using both the traditional painting media, and more experimental use of paint, color pallets, and materials that reflect their individual styles. Joan Fabian, San Antonio artist, had created hybrid mixed media paintings and line drawings, using decorative motifs and designs derived from Pakistan fabrics and her investigations of eastern cultures. She combined digital drawings, watercolor, paint and acrylic in creating her work. Ms. Fabian stated, “I formulate paintings, collages, hybrid drawings and scribble recordings as investigations of my surroundings and cultures present, whether at home or abroad. Capturing images, motifs and icons of cultures, both east and west.”
