Becky Hendrick: Invoking Light
July 21, 2022 - December 4, 2022

Peter and Margaret de Wetter Gallery

This exhibition pairs two paintings by artist Becky Hendrick. Though not created intentionally as a duo, the works answer each other and evoke contemplation. In both works, Hendrick employs black panels to symbolize Heaven and Earth, alluding to the I Ching, an ancient Chinese divination text. Aside from focusing on themes of the spiritual and tangible, both paintings play on perspectives and a call to action.

Support for this exhibition is provided by the Mellon Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation, and the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
