George Billis Gallery is pleased to announce Margery Gosnell-Qua and her latest work at the New York location. "East End Light" will run from November 6 through December 8, 2018, located at 525 West 26th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues.

Margery Gosnell-Qua is a gestural painter who works between representation and abstraction, uncovering visual equivalents to sensing. She begins her artistic process by creating small color studies from life, an information gathering stage in which she records compositions and colored light. In her successive studio works the artist pares down her subject to match her sensory experiences.
