Denise Brown: Seasons
January 12, 2023 - April 16, 2023

Peter and Margaret de Wetter Gallery

Artist Denise Brown’s paintings capture the significance behind universally shared stories and the power within a narrative. This exhibition focuses on the series, The Four Seasons, four large canvases exploring the tales tied to the seasons. Though each of the works are standalone paintings, when displayed together, they become reliant on each other to convey a story. Viewers will encounter imagery and symbolism borrowed from myths and fables combined with the artist’s own imagery. Together the four artworks represent a contemplation of human ambition influenced by literature and personal experience.

Support for this exhibition is provided by the Mellon Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation, and the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
