Texas Draws IV

TEXAS DRAWS IV  

Feb. 11, 2016 - Apr. 24, 2016
Russell Hill Rogers Galleries 1 & 2 | Santikos Building, Navarro Campus
Free and open to the public

Opening Reception: Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm

A biannual exhibition series at the Southwest School of Art, Texas Draws IV features artists from around the state who extend the traditional definition of drawing and apply both traditional and non-traditional approaches to this time-honored discipline. Texas Draws IV takes the larger idea of drawing and explores it via several areas of consideration: materiality/medium; scale; documentation/environment; abstraction; and dimensional form. Through the range of ideas represented in the exhibition, it is clear that Texas artists working within the scope of drawing as a final means of expression are deep within the conversation of line and mark making in contemporary art.

Texas Draws IV features the work of Fernando Andrade (San Antonio), Michael Bise (Houston), Kent Dorn (Houston), Adrian Esparza (El Paso), Mack Gingles (Waco), Hollis Hammonds (Austin), Timothy Harding (Fort Worth), Martha Hughes (Marfa), Robert Jackson Harrington (Austin), Soomin Jung (San Antonio), Kathleen McShane (Fayetteville), Benjamin McVey (San Antonio), Lee Michael Peterson (San Antonio), Rusty Scruby (Dallas), Randy Twaddle (Houston), Terri Thornton (Fort Worth), David Willburn (Dallas), Hsiu Ching Yu (Commerce).

Shown: Michael Bise, Children, 2011, graphite on paper, 42 x 63 inches   
From the collection of Dr. Timothy D. Woolsey
