When: March 31-April 30 2011
In Travels and Dreams, new gallery member Terryl Dunn shows oils based on travel sketches from Barcelona, Bali, Hawaii, India, and Pakistan. Improvising and interpreting with color and gesture, retracing his memory-voyage in paint, Dunn arrives, lengthily, at near-abstractions ("Hilo," "Kushin Rule," "Barcelona") depicting not just exotic locales, but also exalted, even visionary, mental states. Family Ties and Travels and Dreams run through April 30 at Mercury 20 Gallery (475 25th St., Oakland). 510-701-4620 or MercuryTwenty.com.
