at Erin Cluley Gallery thru July 11
by Todd Camplin

A relatively new gallery on the scene is Erin Cluley Gallery.  It is located across the river, over the
Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, in the raising hipster themed neighborhood of Trinity Groves. Erin
Cluley, once Director of Exhibitions at the Dallas Contemporary, has brought some of the
institution’s aesthetic sensibility over to a commercial setting. Most of her artists look to be
flashy and energetic, like the current show titled: Heat Check by painter Zeke Williams
a.k.a. writer Thomas Ezekiel Williams. But first impressions can be deceiving.

Upon arrival at the gallery, I instantly disliked this show. I completely wanted to dismiss it as being
overly dramatic with garish colors that fade and shift on flat wallpaper patterns. I thought to
Giant Flower (orange, pink, gold, green), 2015,
acrylic on canvas, 96 x 72 inches.
