Among the Giants by Kathleen Dunphy- oil on linen 30 x 37.tif-smThe idea for this show started with a farm painting by Randall Sexton “that depicted workers harvesting lettuce in Salinas,” explains gallery owner Robin Knowlton. “I saw the painting two years ago. It’s a large work painted in that wonderful abstract realism style of Randy’s and I thought then about a whole show of paintings celebrating the beauty of farming; everything from animals to machinery. Kathleen Dunphy seemed like the perfect artist to pair with Sexton and that’s how this theme originated.”
