The Galveston Artist Residency is pleased to present Horizon, a site-specific installation made up of paintings and wall drawings by the artist, George Rush.  The exhibition will open on Saturday, April 26th with a reception from 6-9pm.

George Rush is interested in exploring multiple relationships: between painting and exhibition space; the historical discourse addressing reciprocities between painting, window, and wall; relationships that are built between multiple paintings in a single space. This work continues Rush’s exploration of the psychological and formal impact of modernism and how its legacies both inform the way paintings are made and direct the way we live and work.

George Rush has exhibited in solo exhibitions in the United States and Europe since 2001. His most recent exhibition, Rooms with Windows, was at The Columbus College of Art and Design's Canzani Center. He received a MFA from Columbia School of the Arts and a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. He received a New York Foundation of the Arts Fellowship in Painting in 2005 and a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant in 2010. He is an Assistant Professor of Art at The Ohio State University.
