Virginia Maitland Retrospective

Sep 13, 2018 - Nov 11, 2018


The Arvada Center is proud to present a career retrospective by acclaimed Boulder painter Virginia Maitland. Maitland, long considered one of the region’s premier abstract colorists is featured in a 53-year retrospective, highlighting the evolution and determination of her art practice.

Maitland’s prolific career will be explored with over 45 artworks along with other archive materials from her prolific career, starting in 1965. She incorporates color, light, and nature into her large-scale paintings. Her color fields are an amalgamation of vibrant hues, composition, and translucent paint layers. To achieve this, Maitland applies at least 15-20 layers of poured paint while shifting the canvas, and then uses minimal brush work to define certain areas.
