Three Trees by Amy Talluto. 9"x9", graphite on paper

Drawn Down

November 23-December 28, 2019

Opening Reception:
Saturday, November 23, 4:00-6:00pm

The artists in Drawn Down hail from upstate New York, Massachusetts and New York City and employ an extensive range of drawing techniques. Drawing may be an incidental part of a particular artist’s practice or the dominant preoccupation. The works in the exhibition are figurative and abstract, in some cases existing as studies for paintings and sculptures but all are fully realized pieces unto themselves. Subject matter and motifs might come from direct observation of a distinct landscape or still life, or may be culled from information systems and world cultures taking on themes of nature, science and religion.

The drawings in Drawn Down range from austerely monochromatic compositions to eye-popping color combinations and are rendered in pencil, ink, charcoal, acrylic, sometimes assembled as collage and digital prints that verge on the three-dimensional. Drawn Down sheds light on how the drawing medium continues to be an artist’s most direct route of expression in the creative process—as inspiration travels from eye to brain then hand, finally to be realized on paper.
