Katherine Boxall: Intelligent Abstraction II

September 17 - October 22, 2022

Jerald Melberg Gallery proudly  presents new abstract paintings by gallery artist Katherine Boxall.   Melberg states, Continuing the title from Boxall’s first exhibition with my gallery was important to me, as I am still struck by the intelligence of her abstract paintings. Recent travels across Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and New Mexico as her muse, Boxall captures the distinctive colors, textures, and atmosphere of these changing environments. Boxall says, The works are inspired by our travels, our first road trip the summer of 2020 and now this more recent trip at the beginning of 2022. The water, the mountains, the heat and the cold. With thoughts of home and separation, Boxall puts to canvas the emotional response of being present in new surroundings while recalling familiar places to which one longs to return.  


A native of Ottawa, Canada, Katherine Boxall holds a BFA from Queens University at Kingston and a MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. She constructs abstract paintings that are expressive and intelligent. Incorporating a mix of materials, Boxall’s canvases exude conviction, energy and knowledgeable composition.

Boxall has received numerous awards and honors, including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Artist Grant and The San Francisco Art Institute MFA Presidential Fellowship. Her work has been exhibited across Canada, Australia and the United States, including a solo exhibition at the Mint Museum of Art.

This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.
