Gallery Wrap

What is a Gallery Wrap? Here the artist Judy B. took brown paper and wrapped the Art Gallery. Challenging herself in seeing if she can take 4 gallery walls and completely wrap them in paper. Then applying gesso which is a white paint mixture. Its used for art work as a preparation for surfaces such as wood panels, canvases, as a base for paint and other materials that are applied over it. In this case it was applied to the paper, then painted over using oil paint. The process took the artist about 22 hours to come up with painting 22 abstract paintings. On a Thursday evening the doors were opened at the Gallery for viewing. Paint still dripping wet and the Artist with tiered eyes, it was a success. Pieces were available for purchase with a cut of a scissor and a pick of your choice.
