Arts on the Green presents “Drawing: Eloquence of Line,” an exhibit featuring a diverse range of drawing techniques and styles. Co-curated by Mary Weiss-Waldhorn and well-known Frederick artist Johan Lowie, the exhibit is on display March 27 through May 18, 2020, at the Arts Barn.
The public is invited to meet the artists during a free Artists Reception on Thursday, April 2, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Attendees are also invited to the Gaithersburg Fine Arts Association annual juried exhibit artist reception, taking place simultaneously at the adjacent Kentlands Mansion. **NOTICE: Both Artist Receptions are cancelled.**
Drawing is fundamental to the visual arts as many ideas start out as sketches or drawings. As an art form, drawing has been perfected in many ways with a variety of drawing implements. The use of marks and lines can create the most representational image to the most abstract reverie. Pencils, charcoal, pastels and pen and ink often are the tools used to create drawings, but the power of line can also be translated into other formats. Drawings are often expressions of human energy and emotion, as well as analysis for observation and representation.
Featured artists in this exhibit include Astrid Adler, Judy Anderson, Kendra Biddick, Marco Cuba Ricsi, Stephen Dell‘Aria, Johan Lowie, Emil Markulis, Sheryl Massaro, Jane McDonald, Tony Mel, Lee Newman, Ed Ramsburg, Rula, Audrey Schiminger, Linda Slattery Sherman, Paula Tobenfeld, Brian Truesdale, and Alexey Zoob. Sculptor Homer Yost will also be exhibiting clay sketches of the human figure to complement the drawings in this exhibit.
Please note that some of the artwork is for sale and all images are copyrighted by the artists.
