work by Steve MurphyMurphy, who is from Houston, will be showing paintings and drawings along with his three-dimensional constructions. His abstract paintings and drawings emphasize formal elements such as line, color, texture and shape, which create a relationship with his sculptural works. His small pencil drawings are precise, almost architectural, renderings that are manifested in his sculptural work.

Ridgway, who is from Dallas, will be creating a site-specific installation incorporating drawings on the gallery wall along with her bronze castings of floral and other organic materials. She also will be showing unique mixed media drawings created by layering a variety of materials on a photographic base.
