I was blown away when I saw these huge (8'x6') paintings by Ann Petty at her MFA show last spring. While admiring them, I kept doing the classic museum-goer dance step: running up close to peer at the buttery brush strokes and paint daubs, then stepping slowly back to take in the painting as a whole, then moving up close again--you get the idea. Clearly she's been busy--Sandpoint Gallery is showing an exhibit of new works by both her and fellow MFA graduate Hugo Shi until January 24.
