Darlene Campbell at Prographica Seattle

December 8, 2017

 

I was pleasantly surprised to find these wonderful paintings by Darlene Campbell at the Prographica Gallery in Pioneer Square last night.  I received my MFA along with Darlene from The Claremont Graduate University way back in 1986.

 Darlene's work tends to be of somewhat stark Southern California architecture (homes) and landscapes.

 I hadn't seen the gold leaf details incorporated before.

Like her earlier work, he style is meticulously done.  I didn't even need to read the name tag, I was pretty sure that these were her's from the first glance.

This is apparently a piece for a themed show and a bit out of the norm for Darlene I think.  The image is I believe Patrick Henry wearing a pink pussy hat.  I was fortunate to speak with the owner of the gallery, Eleana Del Rio and she explained that this is a piece from the "Liberty" show  (Koplin Del Rio Link).  This also helped me understand the mystery appearance (at least for me) of the Prographica/KDR Gallery in the Davidson space. Somehow, the  Koplin Del Rio Gallery moved from California to share the space (within Davidson) with Prographica, hence the name Prographica/KDR.
