Deborah Buck ’78, joins her Trinity College mentor, George Chaplin, Charles S. Nutt Professor of Fine Arts, Emeritus, and former chair of the Studio Arts Program, at the opening reception for INK: Recent Paintings by Deborah Buck at the Austin Arts Center’s Widener Gallery in February. The five-week exhibition featured works on paper that combine Japanese sumi ink with densely layered compositions of acrylic, pastel, and chalk. Buck, who expressed her gratitude to Chaplin for having opened her eyes to the world of painting and art history, has had solo exhibitions at Julie Saul Gallery in New York City and the Garrison Art Center in Garrison, New York. The Bronx Museum recognized Buck in its Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program. The above painting, Easter Parade, was among those shown in the Widener exhibition.
