Drawing Closer: Ink and Wood will be at Sarratt Gallery, Vanderbilt University, will be in September 2015. It is a two person exhibit with Ellen Wiener of NY, information below. (Her piece is actually a collaborative installation with poet LB Thompson, so it is really a 3-person exhibit). My figurative drawings on plywood will inhabit the floor space of the gallery, while Wiener will have a 6' x 17' wall-size piece interactive with LB's poetry text. We should be giving a drawing workshop during the last weekend. Exact dates and more details to be announced.
