Please join us Thursday, August 3 for the opening receptions of Where Do We Stand?: Two Years of Drawing with Open Sessions
The event is FREE and open to the public.
Where Do We Stand? includes all thirty-six artists in the current 2016–17 Open Sessions program. The exhibition will be an exploration of contemporary drawing, encompassing video, sculpture, photography, and installation, as well as traditional drawing forms.
Every two years Open Sessions invites artists and creative practitioners through an open call to consider their relationship to drawing as a medium, a process, and as a metaphor. Working together over a two-year period, Open Sessions artists participate in ongoing studio visits and discussions, punctuated by small-group exhibitions at The Drawing Center.
