Teresa Stanley
May 1st – 31st, 2018
Artist Reception: Friday, May 4th, 6-8 PM

Bryant Street Gallery is pleased to present Reservoir a Teresa Stanley exhibition for the month of May. Focused on the theme of water, this exhibition is an interpretation of pipes and bridges, rivers and lakes, and how they interact with each other. Stanley’s botanical hues mix with a grid-like layout to juxtapose the organic and the architectural. The exhibition opens May 1st, with the artist’s reception on May 4th from 6-8pm where the artist will be in attendance.

Although Stanley’s genesis is in water, the colors of her exhibition are not limited to the expected aquatic blues and greens but rather branch out to incorporate earthly ochres, warm corals and burnt vermilions. These colors, usually rich in saturation, are instead diluted as if subtly washed away by a steady flow.  In contrast to the fluid narrative of the works, the structural line presence creates a map-like terrain, or aerial view that invites you to explore the world Stanley has created, if only from a distance.

Teresa Stanley has a B.A. in Studio Art from the University of California, Santa Barbara, an M.A. from San Francisco State University and an M.F.A. from the University of California, Berkeley. She is currently a Professor of Art at Humboldt State University and has work in both private and public collections across the country. Reservoir will be on exhibit from May 1st – 31st, 2018 at Bryant Street Gallery, 532 Bryant St, Palo Alto, CA. The artist will be in attendance of the opening reception, Friday May 4th from 6-8 pm.
