Meyer Vogl Gallery to Host Anne Darby Parker Solo Exhibition in November

Press Release

The paintings in Anne Darby Parker’s upcoming solo exhibition, Fish and Figure, feature her signature female figures along with a new subject for the artist — fish.  The semi-abstract series allowed for an exploration of gesture drawing, painting, and expression. 

Parker says the idea for the body of work came organically — accidentally, in fact. “When I was stepping back from the easel, I kept seeing fish shapes that I had not consciously drawn. The fish were not designed but rather they evolved. The more I considered the idea, the more natural the series seemed because of my work with figures and my family’s heritage with fish. My grandfather was a fisherman; I was raised around the Lowcountry oceans and marshes, and my husband and I chose to raise our family here as well.”

Some paintings include fish painted with clear intention (fish being served on a platter, for example); in others, fish shapes are hidden among the marks. “I love how the figures and the landscape integrated into each other,” Parker says. “This series was a challenge that called for bigger canvases, broader marks, and bolder colors. Each piece depicts a powerful and strong female figure, which I think complements the delicate and intricate nature of fish.”

An opening reception will be held at Meyer Vogl Gallery on Wednesday, November 13th, from 5 pm to 7 pm, with Parker in attendance. The exhibit will run from November 13th to 30th.

Meyer Vogl Gallery is located at 122 Meeting Street.
