Peggy Bates: 'Barachois'

By deftly pouring bright acrylic onto smoothly primed canvases, Bates creates expressive, if elusive, vistas. The vivid paint runnels convey a palpable sense of shifting gravity while the varying opacities blend into transitions as smooth as flowing tides. In a few pieces, squiggled skeins of color convey dynamic energy like the spikes of an EKG monitor, fusing a technological frisson to Bates's organic imagery.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m. Starts: Nov. 11. Continues through Nov. 11, 2008
