Gspot Contemporary’s first solo exhibition of Texas native, Margaret Ann Withers. Consisting of a series of oceanscape paintings in which Withers navigates deeply personal and visionary scenarios informed by themes of alienation, isolation, and uncertainty offset by a wry sense of humor, which functions as an antidote to the constant specters of hopelessness and despair, as she fearlessly dives into the mystery of existence in the 21st century. Withers’ artwork is in multiple private and corporate collections, including Trunginger AG, in Zurich, Switzerland, and has won many awards, including a 2016 Artist in Residence at The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA).
