The Temple Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition featuring well known Tucson artist, Gail Marcus-Orlen, Gail Marcus-Orlen: Paintings. The exhibition will run from October 12th through November 20th. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on Friday, October 19th at 5:00 – 7:30pm.

The exhibition will highlight Orlen’s recent work, in which she explores the relationship between the real and the imagined, juxtaposing the strict rules of Renaissance perspective and composition to fanciful, symbolic, shape-shifting imagery. Only an astute observer of the world like Gail Marcus-Orlen could create paintings whose signature quality is a rich fantasy life that is simultaneously specific and referential. In short, one must know the world to depart from it convincingly.

As Orlen herself says of her new work, “These paintings are saying that at the blink of an eye, colors can slowly change, water become cloth, and Mona Lisa may wander by your window. Nothing stays the same, no matter how much you want it to.”

Running concurrently with the exhibition of Orlen’s new work at the Temple Gallery is an exhibition of her work at the Gallery in the Gardens located at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, voted “America’s Best Secret Garden” by Reader’s Digest. The exhibition at Gallery in the Gardens will run from October 1st to November 25th and a reception will be held there on Sunday, October 21st at 11am – 1pm. Tucsonans are indeed fortunate to be able to view Gail Marcus-Orlen’s work at two landmark locations, the Temple Gallery and Gallery at the Gardens.

Gail Marcus-Orlen is represented by Etherton Gallery, which manages the Temple Gallery, and is available for interviews upon request. Please contact Etherton Gallery at 520-624-7370 or email us at info@ethertongallery.com to schedule an interview or for more information about the artist or her work.
