Carla Poindexter is featured at the Twelve21 Gallery along with Robert Poindexter in Our Small Private Stories. Both artists are native to Houston, Texas and have exhibited in multiple solo exhibitions and group shows nationally. Carla is also known for her animated short film produced in 2009 and for her 8 ft x 28 ft commissioned painting on permanent display in the atrium of the Darden Theatre Auditorium at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management in Orlando.

Robert moved to Orlando in 2007 and has recently concentrated on several bodies of work, which include large abstract oil paintings and intimate multimedia works on paper. His work is in many private and public collections, mainly in Texas. Both artists are recognized for their large, seemingly nonobjective abstractions shown in past exhibitions, however this show highlights work from both past and present series which are smaller and more private, often visually poetic, and sometimes humorous.

Our Small Private Stories is on display April 8 through May 6. An opening reception will be held on April 8 from 7 to 10 p.m. For more information, see the Twelve21 Gallery website.
