Up at the Lamar Dodd School of Art through September 17th: The Re:mark 2010 Drawing Invitational, curated by LDSOA’s own Jon Swindler, Assistant Professor of Printmaking, and Gallery Director Jeffery Whittle.
From the LDSOA website:
Over the past few years, drawing (as a medium) has experienced a sort of rejuvenation. Perhaps spurred by a reaction to the hi-fi/hi-def leanings of visual culture, drawing, in many ways functions as a lo-fi/lo-def retreat. For the artists featured in “Re: mark”, drawing also affords a conceptual foundation and visual clarity unlike any other media. In the hands of these individuals, drawing is approached as idea, activity and material. Though each employing a unique visual strategy, the spirit of their work remains tied to the immediate, almost elementary nature of mark making.
This invitational features the work of Kathleen McShane, Sara Schneckloth, Barb Bondy, and Phillip Buntin. Read each artists’ statement at: http://art.uga.edu/index.php?pt=3&id=244#
