Four decades or less
Elliott Fouts Gallery's February exhibition showcases artists 40 years old and younger
There's a stonelike quietness to Ali Cavanaugh's paintings of beautiful young women, often wearing patterned knee-high socks on their spindly arms, bent into odd angles and obscuring their face. But the intensity of stillness makes sense when the viewer learns of how important body language is to Cavanaugh, who lost much of her hearing as a child. And her delicate, remarkably realistic watercolor-on-clay paintings—called “modern frescoes”—along with the sparse landscapes of Megan Aline, impressionistic florals of Angie Renfro, plus several other artists, are part of Elliott Fouts Gallery's 40 & Under group show.
