San Antonio Artist Tracy Williams Hosts Debut Of New Works
By Jake Gaines Photography by Greg Harrison
Contemporary and abstract artist Tracy Williams recently celebrated the unveiling of a collection of new works and paintings, Rock On. The venue, the Ivy Hall in Southtown, provided the perfect backdrop for the event, while the delectable light bites and drinks were from Tim the Girl Catering.
Williams addresses the place of and beyond an earthly plane, inspired by the wonders of flora and fauna, land, and sky. Abstract expressionism is rooted in a family legacy of artists. Williams often returns to memories of producing art at an early age: clay-making and discovering color. This influence energized Williams to create a more committed body of work, and still guides her study today. Williams’ paintings demonstrate continuity and meditation in movement through the energy, emotion, and gestural exploration of her brushstroke, line, and color mixtures.
Tracy Williams lives in San Antonio and creates in her personal studio. Her work has been exhibited locally at Blue Star Contemporary, The McNay, Southwest School
of Art, AnArte Gallery, and the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center.
Every woman is a work of art in her own right. We love that. Plus, some of the most famous art collections live in closets on hangers. Here we present this spring’s most luxurious party frocks against the backdrop of some of today’s most prolific Texas artists. Go ahead, dance up a storm in your own, artful way.
