Mark An Art Exhibition Investigating Drawing
September 10 – October 10, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 10, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
The Lyndon House Arts Center in partnership with The Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia, and with Guest Juror Professor Georgia Strange would like to invite you to the fall exhibition, “Mark”, an exhibit investigating the nature of drawing.
Often it is by the personal nature of our marks that viewers come to know the work as ours. The drawn line, the artist’s marks that build a composition, can have many qualities. They can be delicate, bold, simple, complex, obtuse or explicit, intuitive, logical, abstract, realistic, and so much more.
“Mark” includes 47 of works by women artists who are members of the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia and invited guests. The works range from sculptural objects to highly detailed pencil works, expressive painting to cut paper, fiber, woodcut print and collage on digital photography.
To accompany the “Mark” exhibition, the Lyndon House Arts Center and the Women’s Caucus for Art are hosting two community events, “Draw Table”. “Draw Table” is a participatory drawing event in the gallery. Join the artists in the “Mark” exhibit around a big community table for an evening of drawing together on Thursday September 17, 6:00 – 8:00 PM and October 10, Saturday, 1:00 – 3:00 PM. “Draw Table” is a fun way to create art together and is open to all skill levels.
Guest curator, Georgia Strange, is a Professor at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. She received her MFA degree from Indiana University and more recently an EdD from UGA. Strange’s sculpture and ceramics has been exhibited widely at many prestigious venues including SOHO20 Gallery in New York City since 1990. Strange serves on the Board of the College Art Association.
