Toklat gallery opens ‘The Colorists’ today
The Toklat Gallery in Basalt will open “The Colorists,” featuring new work by local painters Susanne Clark and Dave Durrance, on Friday.
Both artists recently completed the Anderson Ranch three-week studio concentration “Color Mastery for the Painter.” Gallerist Lynne Mace — who has known Durrance since grade school in Aspen — said the pair is shaking things up at Toklat.
“I have had the best time being teased out of my comfort zone of purely realistic paintings to appreciating abstract, evocative and colorful paintings,” Mace said.
An opening reception with the artists will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s new fall lecture series will run weekly from Oct. 20 through Dec. 6. The lineup consists of artists nationwide who will be spending one to three weeks at the ranch completing projects within their area of expertise and exploring new work in the studios.
