This is the second show exploring the different approaches of drawing including men and women artists who are working within different disciplines and current interests such as; writing, film and documentaries, performance, design, ceramics, greeting card production, quilting, music etc. I am really excited about the group of artists in this exhibition. Many of them live in Phoenix, AZ. and are the most progressive art makers that I know of in this community. The other artists from out-of-town have lived here at one time and have strong ties to this city and the ideas of making. At one point they all contributed greatly to the philosophies practiced here and we miss them. Each artist will exhibit 3 to 5 drawings that are 8 x 10 or smaller. The show is taking place in 6th Street Studios (6th Street & Roosevelt) an adaptive reuse space developed by Greg Esser in a historic downtown phoenix home that will provide artist’s affordable studio space. The opening is the First Friday Oct. 3rd, 5 to 10 PM and will continue through November 1st (space hours are fri. 5 to 9PM & Sat. 1 to 5).
I hope that this BLOG can be an arena for conversation around the work being created for the show.
