Watchers by Natalie Gruber, detail
Laura Bigger’s Intermediate and Advanced Drawing Exploration students present Drawing – Implied in the Charlyn Gallery. The works in the exhibition explore “drawing,” the verb, in the abstract and test the limits of what one considers a drawing. Each artist created a wall-based installation that emphasizes formal decisions to create something that reads as a drawing, considers implied line or line created by both traditional and nontraditional means, and intentionally incorporates light and shadow to draw in a three-dimensional space.
Artists include: Maggie Adams, Sarah Early, Jamie Foutch, Natalie Gruber, Abby Moreno, Stephen Poindexter and Wesley Scafe.
The exhibition runs February 1st through 25th.

Professor Lindsey Dunnagan has told us about her current exhibition at Weinberger Fine Art in Kansas City, MO. The Exhibition is titled “Northern Catch” and she writes:
This series is a pleasure project inspired by my childhood of growing up in Anchorage, Alaska where I spent time by the ocean and watched the sky for the Aurora Borealis. Each piece is multi layered and includes images offish nets, the shapes of icebergs, and patterns found in the Alaskan landscape, such as ice striations. Formally, some pieces are linked to one another because the series responds to and plays with process scraps. For example, “Migrating Silver” is made of several paper layers. The top layer has a hole cut in the shape of a fish net. Inside the hole are other fish net and ice berg shapes cut out of other paintings. Every cut form becomes part of a new work. The playful process of this work parallels my glance back at childhood. By manipulating shapes from the place I love, the work evokes a panglossian nostalgia.
