On Big Drawings

Curated by Friedhard Kiekeben

October 2- November 1, 2014

Reception: October 2, 5-7 pm

On Big Drawings brings together artists whose work celebrates the medium of drawing as a contemporary form of expression in relationship to its surroundings. Drawings are often thought of as intimate representative works that are preparation for a finished piece. On Big Drawings seeks to expand classic notions of drawing as mere visual representation into a nuanced discussion of how contemporary drawing can operate on a large scale in planar, constructed, and projected space.

Each featured artist has made an outstanding contribution to an expanded notion of drawing, creating work that engenders a dialogue about drawing across media boundaries, while engaging with large-scale works created for specific spaces.

Participating artists include Neville Gabie, Charles Mahaffee, Michael K. Paxton, Olivia Petrides, Deb Sokolow, Christine Wallers, and Matthew Woodward.
