"Rose City" by Ingrid Horner

A new exhibit in downtown Tyler featuring abstract paintings by local artist Ingrid Horner has shaped up nicely. "Shaping Up: Geometric Interactions of Form, Shape, and Color” is on display Gallery Main Street through September 5.


"Toucan II" by Ingrid Horner

Horner's geometric forms are bold and vibrantly colorful. She adorns canvases several feet high with abstract symbols and decorative letters. Some contain visions of jewel tones or warm tropical colors while others use color minimally. Still others fall somewhere in between with large swaths of black or white contrasted with graphics in warm green, muted purples, or bright reds.


Tyler, TX Loop by Ingrid Horner.

Type is a graphic element in some of Horner's works. The painting "Tyler, TX Loop" includes the letters and abstract symbols of movement and transportation. "Rose City Multicolor" is lighter in tone with floral symbols and type that tilts playfully.

"Origami Rose" presents a yellow rose as a geometric study dissected by pink lines.

The use of place names and symbols shows Horner's appreciation of geography and its impact on the spaces inside our heads.

Gallery Main Street is located at 110 N. College Ave. on the bottom floor of Plaza Tower. The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays. Click HERE for information about Gallery Main Street.
