"Honestly, I think Virginia is one of the best painters in our time zone," says gallery director Sandra Phillips. "Her work has a definite 'wow' factor, so I am thrilled to be presenting her second solo exhibit at my gallery. I just love having her luscious and beautiful paintings on the walls.
The show is mostly made up of recent work that marks a return to Maitland's classic approach to abstraction, but there will also be two paintings from the '70s, which is when she first came to local prominence. All of them will be on view tonight at a reception, with Maitland in attendance, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the gallery, 744 Santa Fe Drive.
