The Arthur Roger Gallery is pleased to present The Balm of Mystery, an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Douglas Bourgeois. The exhibition will be on view at Arthur Roger@434, located at 434 Julia Street, from February 3 – April 20, 2024. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artist in attendance on Saturday, March 2 from 6–8 pm.

The Balm of Mystery marks Douglas Bourgeois’ tenth exhibition with the gallery, presenting never-before-shown oil paintings from the last fifteen years as well as 100 graphite portraits. Bourgeois, known for his meticulous attention to detail, employs both a restrained, almost monochromatic color scheme and a technicolor hyper-reality, creating dreamlike and fantastical scenes that invite viewers into a world of artistic wonder.
