EXHIBITION ON DISPLAY: June 22 - August 5, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, June 22, 2017 6:00 - 8:00 pm

An exhibition of prints from Lococo Fine Art Publisher will be on display June 22 through July 29 at William Campbell Contemporary Art. An opening reception will take place Thursday, June 22, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The show will include several dozen pieces from such noted artists as Alex Katz, Donald Sultan, Ross Bleckner, Donald Baechler, and Crash.

Featured in the gallery collection are two new large-scale silkscreens by Katz. Departure depicts an austere female figure from behind as she retreats into the picture plane, while 10:30 A.M. presents an array of luminous, organic flora that expand across the surface. The show also includes a new suite of Sultan's signature high-contrast, graphic floral forms titled Lantern Flowers, Feb. 10, 2017, in addition to the new, abstract Dome suite by Bleckner in red, blue, and grey variations. Prints from Baechler's recent suite of color-blocked roses on patterned fields also appear, along with graffiti-inspired works by Crash. Images of the prints are available for preview at www.lococofineart.com.

About William Campbell Contemporary Art

William Campbell Contemporary Art is pleased to announce its 42nd Anniversary having opened on November 24, 1974.

Through the years, Bill and Pam Campbell have become an integral part of the Texas art scene. They have dealt with some of the most important artists of the day, as well as some of the most promising ones that have come to their notice. Many of the latter have become the former.

The years have brought an ever-widening circle of involvements in the art world, as well as a life beyond anything ever expected. "We still get excited about seeing a great work of art for the first time and feel tremendous joy every time our efforts bear fruit on behalf of an artist."

The Campbells' community involvement has included leadership roles and behind-the-scenes support of worthwhile activities. Their deepest satisfaction has been in connecting several generations of artists and collectors with one another, within the gallery and beyond to the national and international level. "Watching and being a part of artists' thriving careers has been exceedingly rewarding!"

Bill and Pam Campbell would like to thank friends, associates, several generations of collectors, the community, the media, and a host of great artists for a wonderful forty years.
