On Location: Drawing Every Day
November 11, 2010 - January 22, 2011
Peter Arkle, Gabriel Campanario, Elissa Della-Piana, Margaret Hurst, Kyle David Lindholm, Fred Lynch, and Veronica Lawlor
Inspired by the artistic practice of daily drawing this exhibition features drawings created across the Globe. Ranging from Seattle to Afghanistan, the images are taken directly from the sketchbooks of artists, illustrators and designers. The works connect to the tradition of the artist as reporter, the illustrated travelogue, and the newfound resurgence of observational drawing as seen in the urban sketchers movement.
Together the drawings celebrate life. The artist’s sketchbook is often a site of personal expression, a place of spontaneity, where one captures the energy of traveling and feels the freedom to experiment. It is also a reflection of the desire to observe and record the world. In the process of documenting the everyday, each artist presents something otherwise unseen.
