Chan Chich River 1, mixed media on paper. By Kathy Windrow.

Kathy Windrow holds a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing and an Master of Arts in Art History from Southern Methodist University. She is a Professor in the Department of Visual Arts at Eastfield College and the Director of the SMU Oaxaca and Italy programs. Her work is held in collections at S.M.U. and the Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano, Lima, Peru.

Artist statement:
Keeper of time. Marker of space. An elegant line. Boundary or connection between the celestial, earthly, and underworld realms. The river as motif has flowed through my work since 1986. This exhibition of painting, installation, and mixed media work is a meditation on the river as a place, as an experience, and as a form. It is inspired by the Wallace Stevens poem “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.”

One thing I need in my life is a river. Of the rivers I have known, two shaped me the most: the San Juan River in Colorado, where my sister and I dreamed away summers of hours while our parents and grandparents fly fished; and the Nile, along which Jess and I walked the same path 390 days in a row. Inundation and abundance. Also a lure is the magic darkness of the Chan Chich River, which commands perception and whispers invitations for Woolfian pockets of stones.

On-site Lecture Series:
Cheryl Vogel and John Lunsford will present a talk in association with the exhibition “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a River” at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, March 25.

Chery Vogel, Curator and Co-owner of Valley House Gallery in Dallas, received her Master of Arts in Art History from Southern Methodist University. John Lunsford is the former Senior Curator of Non-Western Art at the Dallas Museum of Art and former Director of the Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University.
