Dixie Purvis Solo Show

Opening Reception April 21st from 6-8:30 pm

We are pleased to announce our first-ever solo show for local Atlanta artist, Dixie Purvis.

Dixie Taylor Purvis is an abstract painter known for her large abstracts – oil on panel. The abstracts are remarkable for the strong and varied marks and the bold colors. The abstracts explode and surprise, moving out from the middle and in from the sides. They are raw and open but dense and complex. The marks are physical and fractured. Sometimes the marks are spontaneous, other times deliberate but always suggesting the complexity of our human experience – accidental or planned. Events overlap, merge and emerge much like our personal history. Inspired by a refrain from a song, a dream or a personal event she paints from her core and leaves it all on the surface. While she occasionally includes figurative elements she avoids “things” preferring to stay with organic shapes and imagery allowing the viewer to bring their own experience and emotion to the painting. Dixie is represented by several galleries and has work in a large number of collections including: Federal Reserve Bank, Atlanta Gas Light, Holder Construction, King and Spalding, Piedmont Hospital, Northwestern Mutual, Georgia Tech, Ritz Carlton, Alston and Bird. She has had a number of solo shows and her work has been highlighted in a number of publications. Dixie received her BFA from Virginia Tech and her masters degree from the University of Virginia. She maintains a studio in Atlanta.

Please join us Friday night, April 21st, from 6-8:30 pm to meet the artist and enjoy cocktails and lite bites!
