Malcolm Doran at Kracke Gallery

Master artist Malcolm Doran’s recently opened exhibition, “Allow Me”, will be held at the Kracke Fine Art Gallery in Rancho Mirage through January 27th, 2013. The show will feature sixteen of Doran’s signature female portraits including premieres of his newest works, “Purple Rain” and “Sofia”.

“It has certainly been fun working with 16 such precocious women,” comments Gallery owner Daniel Phelan. “They each have their own individual style yet all possess a common thread; like sisters from the same family.”

An artist’s reception will be held at the gallery on Saturday, January 12th from 4-7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
