2:30 to 3:00 pm – A Moment with Lowell Boyers. Exhibition: Inscapes


“I see the creative imagination as a birthright belonging to every being, and my work is fundamentally a textural portrayal of the unfolding blossoming of various stages of awakening to that active nature.” states Lowell.


Lowell Boyers lives and works in Chelsea New York and is a graduate of the Yale University MFA program and the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA). For 30 years his work has been included in both private and institutional exhibitions in Abu Dhabi, Dallas, Germany, Houston, India, London, Los Angeles, New York, and St. Louis. With Inscapes being Boyer’s forth solo exhibition at Deborah Colton Gallery, since 2004 Colton has presented Boyer’s art in many national locations, including several times in Dallas and as far reaching as the Abu Dhabi Art Fair.


3:00 to 3:30 pm – A Conversation with Grayson Chandler. Exhibition: Cocoon


Grayson explores concepts of metamorphosis, emergence, and notions of self, in relation to the human psyche. Drawing from aspects of these concepts, this body of work attempts to transcend a sense of duality – the perception of self and other as separate – instead instilling in viewers a state of awareness that begins and ends with the self.  Born in Houston, Grayson is a recent BFA Art Studio graduate from the University of North Texas.  This is his second solo exhibition at Deborah Colton Gallery, with his first being a huge success in 2016.



3:30 to 4:00 pm – Presentation with Felipe Lopez. Exhibition: The Want In My Nature


With a focus on water, Lopez creates a conversation around how this precious resource is a part of our daily lives and our actions regarding its preservation. Our culture expresses a want to protect nature but often falls short when it comes to delivery. Other works within the show are constructed to delve into our connection to water: from lasting impressions of how the ocean meets the land within the Ambient Horizon series along with Ab Aqua Libertas – from water comes freedom, a video piece which shows the strength, wisdom, and beauty of four women through a natural common process (for mature audiences only).


Born in New York, a first generation Cuban American, Felipe Lopez has acquired an impressive resume and exhibition history as a multifaceted artist. Exhibitions include those in Houston, Miami, New York, Spain and Greece. Focusing on the natural, Lopez’s work has been noted in multiple publications including an essay entitled Felipe Lopez: The Allure of Water by Raphael Rubinstein and an article by Houston Chronicle’s Molly Glentzer as a review for his recent exhibition: The Liquidity of a Right. Lopez continues to break boundaries within the concept of contemporary sculpture along with multi-faceted installation including video, while still remaining true to the essence of painting and presentation. Although Lopez has been mentored by Colton for many years, this is his very first solo exhibition at Deborah Colton Gallery… with a bright future ahead of him.
