Tiptoeing Through the Universe: Paintings by Genny Gordy

Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company will open an exhibition of new paintings by artist Genny Gordy, Thursday November 7, 5 – 8 pm.  The artist is beloved as a painter and art educator, remembered by many as an art teacher at Burris and the co-owner of Gordy Fine Art and Framing from 1989 – 2015.  Throughout the evening, she will be on hand to engage with viewers and answer questions.  At 6:15 she will speak briefly about her work.  Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

Ms. Gordy’s new paintings are small often referring to the chaos and creative energy of motherhood and mother earth.  Seed pods, stardust, sexual desire, and bleary-eyed motherly sleeplessness all occupy equal space expressing fertility and the persistence of life.  In her images, women wear the sun’s rays like a tiara equating their life-giving energy.  She works at a very fast pace with good humor and an uncanny instinct for organizing complex compositions.  “Genny confines her art to anything that happens in the universe,” says Carl Schafer.  “Like tiny universes, her pictures seem like accidents, but in fact they are highly ordered and the result of her wonderfully sophisticated sense of design.”
