DOWLING HOME VISUAL ARTS DEPARTMENT




The Nature of Drawing

January 23 - March 18, 2011

Reception: February 13, 2011 1:00 to 4:00 pm
Speaker: Joe Amrhein, Founder of the Pierogi Gallery, at 2:00 pm


The Anthony Giordano Gallery at Dowling College presents The Nature of Drawing, featuring artwork by Eric Beltz, Hugo Crosthwaite, Matthew Fisher, Lisa Iglesias, Philip Knoll, Suzanne Sattler, and Joseph Smolinski. This exhibition highlights contemporary artists who use graphite as their primary medium. The work is narrative and ranges from historical war heroes to animals both present and extinct and from persons engaged in fantastic or allegorical actions to depictions of the gritty realities of life. The backdrop and thread that connects this work is the distinct nature of mark-making. Each of these artists uses drawing to recapture stories or to tell tales, disparate though they may be.
