Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, Features Works by Carl Krabill and Dennis Revitzky
Gallery C in Raleigh, NC, is presenting the exhibition, COLOR versus TEXTURE, featuring landscapes by Carl Krabill and Dennis Revitzky, on view through Sept. 5, 2006.

COLOR versus TEXTURE squares off two  veteran landscape painters: Carl Krabill and Dennis Revitzky. Krabill and Revitzky have both had long careers as painters and as art instructors. Both have found their inspiration in nature and chosen the landscape as their subject but, that is where the similarities end.
Krabill, who lives half the year in his native Ohio and half the year in Raleigh, paints with a wide palette of intense color. His training as an abstract expressionist is very apparent in his bold, painterly use of the medium. Color is the overriding factor throughout whether he is painting a stand of trees or a quite creek bed. Krabill builds each large scale work in a series of layers beginning with pure color and light and ending with the details that elegantly suggest a landscape we know. He has received the American Council of Learned Societies' grant and was awarded a Juror's Mention for a painting in the Cleveland Museum of Art Show.
New York resident Dennis Revitzky is a painter and printmaker fascinated with texture and he has been mixing media for years to heighten the effects of his dramatic compositions. Each oil and mixed-media painting begins as a collage of modeling paste and various other materials on stretched canvas. Cloth, burlap, sand and occasionally rope may also be found imbedded in the paste. Mixtures of dark oil paint are brushed into this sealed, textured collage and then wiped with rags in a similar manner to the inking and wiping of a collagraph printing plate. Revitzky has shown his work extensively and has pieces in the collections of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO, the  Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, NY, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, to name a few. 
This will be the first exhibition in Raleigh for both painters so do not miss out on this exciting show!
