Gloria Brown

Gallery of Fine Art

The current paintings are formally very satisfying with their loose, free swinging structure working nicely together with ingratiating color. The paintings would gain in strength considerably if the paint film were not so thin. This exhibit marks a big step forward, however, from the last show seen of Mrs. Brown’s paintings.
