Between the Sheets: a look inside the artist’s sketchbook
February 16 – March 22, 2012
opening reception: Feb 16, 7-9pm
Sketching is fundamental to the artist’s process. It is used for recording ideas, marking observations, or developing visual plans. Regardless of the medium in which an artist may work, the sketchbook is generally a basic first step of creation.
With “Between the Sheets”, The Distillery Gallery has invited artists to display work that was not quite intended for exhibition. Entire sketchbooks, loose sheets of paper, scribbles on bar napkins, even printouts of digital renderings will be exhibited in this unique show of working concepts, visual studies, and rough ideas. Sketches will surely range from what appear to be finished works of art to seemingly meaningless doodles. This intimate look into the work behind the work aims to reveal that sketches and sketching techniques can vary just as much as finished works. The show will simultaneously highlight a moment in their processes that the artists are on the same page.
Fran Azzarto, Aimee Belanger, Scott Chasse, Kenley Darling, Alison Davis, Pat Falco, Hans Guggenheim, Derek Hoffend, Jay LaCouture, Eric D. Love, Joyce McDaniel, Michael Mullaney, Shana Paleologos, Micaela Ruiz, Lisa Scollan, Mary Sherman, Beth Redmond Walsh, David Wooddell, Dana Woulfe
UPCOMING: “All in the Family”
Paintings by Dan McCole and Brian Reardon. Curated by Kathleen Bitetti.
March 31 – April 26, 2012
“All in the Family” will feature work by two painters from one family. Dan McCole is the uncle of Brian Reardon and this is the first time they have exhibited together. Both share a love of similar subject matter, but they have distinct ways of depicting it.
