Jerald Melberg Gallery Opens Solo Exhibition Intelligent Abstraction

On display January 16 – March 6, 2021

Jerald Melberg Gallery will present a brand new exhibition of abstract paintings by Katherine Boxall. This is the artist’s inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery and a catalogue is being published for the occasion. 

A Canadian native, Boxall holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. After moving to Charlotte in 2018, Boxall immediately began constructing her intelligent, expressive paintings using a mix of materials: acrylic, spray paint, pastel and oil.

Of this new body of work, Boxall says, “The paintings in this exhibition were created in my warehouse studio in Charlotte, North Carolina, during the 2020 pandemic. The work is influenced by the unusual grounding experience we all find ourselves in, but also a series of nomadic camping trips that my partner, dog and I have been undertaking across the United States this year. Being from Canada and far from ‘home’, these paintings memorialize moments of novelty and escapism living, working and traveling in America.”
