San Antonio Museum of Art Opens Marcia Gygli King: Botanical Paintings, Part of 40 Year Retrospective
SAN ANTONIO, TX.- Three concurrent exhibitions, at The University of Texas at San Antonio, at the San Antonio Museum of Art, and at the Southwest School of Art & Craft, reflect different facets of the respected artist Marcia Gygli King during her 40-year-long career.

King is considered a leading artist of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, and has produced work of note in multiple styles, from minimalist to expressive abstraction to bold figurative wall-size paintings. No matter what the genre, however, she has said that “the need to translate nature’s energies has never left my work.”

Entitled Marcia Gygli King: Forty Years, the three exhibitions in San Antonio represent her many phases and interests. Early works on paper, under the heading “Spontaneous Combustion,” are exhibited at the Southwest School of Art & Craft. The San Antonio Museum of Art present her “Botanical Paintings,” a body of work she began in the early 1990s and continues to pursue. The UTSA Art Gallery exhibits a selection of her most recent works, “The Culture Series.”

With studios in both New York City and San Antonio, her decades of work reflect the important give-and-take between regional artists and the New York art world.

King’s extensive record includes numerous awards, frequent discussions of her work in magazines, journals and in a documentary, and a long list of national exhibitions. Her work is included in the collections of the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Arkansas Art Center, the Brooklyn Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the McNay Museum, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC – among many.
