    Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing Expanded-Curated by Deborah Davidson

    Presented by at Concord Art Association

    October 20 - November 20, 2011


    Cannot Be Described in Words: Drawing Expanded-Curated by Deborah Davidson

    Something is communicated in a drawing that has remained a constant for centuries - an intimacy of expression that is otherwise the province of writing. Cannot Be Described In Words: Drawing Expanded features works by ten artists who engage in a variety of mediums and are all interested in the materiality of drawing. They share a sense of daring: exploring new approaches, scale and materials that expand the definition of drawing and add to what that definition can be. Their drawings are projective, that is, they depict something that is imagined before it is drawn. The works range from installation to drawings that are iterations of sculptural space, to those that are made by the blinking of the eye, to the use of traditional materials like charcoal which are pushed beyond their expected limitations.
    Featured artists:
    Jill Slosberg Ackerman, Ilona Anderson, Sheila Gallagher, Audrey Goldstein, Raul Gonzalez, Chuck Holtzman, Fred Liang, Cynthia Maurice, Randal Thurston and Debra Weisberg.
