ON VIEW THRU JANUARY 27, 2024: “In Remembrance of Frank X. Tolbert 2: Selections from the Studio” on view at Andrew Durham Gallery.
Celebrating the life and work of this late, great artist, the exhibition features a diverse range of artwork by Frank X. Tolbert 2, including paintings, drawings, and ephemera.
I especially love his magical way of interpreting the world with line and color. He explored the birds of Texas in paintings, etchings and drawings — these works were my favorites.
Each piece has been carefully selected to represent different phases in Tolbert’s artistic development. From his early explorations to his most recent works, the collection provides a glimpse into the artist’s creative process, inspirations, and the development of his distinctive style.
Tolbert’s artistic career is marked by his ability to blend various mediums, techniques, and themes seamlessly. His works often delve into the intersection of nature, culture, and human experiences, resulting in visually stunning and thought-provoking pieces. Through his art, Tolbert has consistently pushed boundaries, challenging conventional norms and inviting viewers to engage in a deeper dialogue.
