Strolling through Richmond on early morning walks, Sally Bowring draws much of her inspiration from the changing seasons and natural subjects.
In Weather Report, she concentrates on the energy within her strokes, establishing an unpredictability relating to weather and climate. She notes,
“the resulting abstract paintings reference a concern for order, selection and beauty, and read metaphorically; the work alludes to cycles, unpredictability,
things seen and hidden, and the repetition of life.”
Coming from New York, Bowring received her MFA from VCUarts in 1983. She is now a passionate leader in the Richmond arts community, teaching
at VCU in the Painting and Printmaking department, and at the VMFA Studio School, while also serving as a Public Art Commissioner for Richmond.
Weather Report will be Bowring’s sixth solo show at the gallery.
