Opening Friday, June 26 from 6-9pm at ARC Gallery in Chicago. Lot’s of wonderful drawing to be seen. My “Red Planet” drawing is in the show.

The Base Line: An Exhibition on Drawing

Drawing. The first and most basic skill an artist learns. A medium steeped in tradition and transcendent of that tradition. A skill that has moved certainly beyond pencil and paper, yet no matter what, still the first and most central element of all two dimensional art works. This exhibition is an exploration and celebration of Drawing.

Juror Aron Packer of the Packer-Schopf Gallery has selected 41 outstanding drawings for this exhibit dedicated to the simple– and often, not-so-simple– art of drawing.
