Biddeford, ME – Second installment of a two-part drawing exhibition opens October 26 at Engine
Please join Engine for the opening of Drawing II: The Other Day, the second installment of a two-part exhibition curated by Deborah Whitney, curator/gallerist formerly of Whitney Art Works in Portland, Maine, on Friday, October 26, from 5-7pm. The exhibition will run through November 24, 2018. While the first installment, Drawing I: The Everyday, featured a collection of works with subject matter and concepts that are familiar, Drawing II: The Other Day will feature works that are more about abstract concepts–less recognizable imagery with an emphasis on pattern and color. Drawing II: The Other Day artists include Terrence Brett, Clint Fulkerson, Deborah Randall, Ling-Wen Tsai, Bridget Spaeth, Noriko Sakanishi, Avy Claire, Kate Beck, and Grace DeGennaro. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday 1pm-6pm and Saturdays 11am-2pm.
The two shows together investigate the range that drawing can be…the materials, the presentation, the complexity and the simplicity. In The Everyday, Judith Allen-Efstathiou’s banner of lace is drawn out of the binary holes of computer paper, and in The Other Day, Ling-Wen Tsai has made a series of panels which communicate words hand-drawn from binary code in sumi ink. It is these juxtapositions which help to illustrate the kinds of ideas that drawing may incorporate.
Drawing I: The Every Day featured works by Terrance Brett, Sabrina Small, Brian Lynch, Paul Ridyard, Alex Sax, Nicola Saunderson, Tanja Kunz, Melinda Barnes, Judith Allen-Efstathiou, and Deborah Whitney.
Drawing II: The Other Day will feature works by Terrence Brett, Clint Fulkerson, Deborah Randall, Ling-Wen Tsai, Bridget Spaeth, Noriko Sakanishi, Avy Claire, Kate Beck, and Grace DeGennaro. “The Other Day, will be a collection of works that are more about abstract concepts–less recognizable imagery with an emphasis on pattern and color. I am thinking about it as music–with big and small notes…a sort of different view of life. Terrance Brett is working on a conceptual piece in which he is responding to a piece of music that he heard years ago and which stayed with him. Please excuse the pun, but, I am riffing on that idea of the connection of our visual and aural senses. I have always envisioned the installation of artwork in a space as music, and this is the first time that I have endeavored to intentionally construct a show around this notion of vision and sound,” says Whitney.
