Working Drawings features works by artist George Wray, University of Idaho College of Art + Architecture professor emeritus. Please join us for the artist reception on Wednesday, September 18 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., with refreshments and no-host bar provided by Bloom.
The reception will feature an artist discussion panel called Inhabiting the Creative Process beginning at 6 p.m. Panelists represent a variety of media, so the discussion will explore multiple perspectives of creative work. Robert Caisley, a playwright who is the chair of University of Idaho Theatre Arts and a member of the Moscow Arts Commission, will moderate the discussion. Panelists Dan Bukvich, Sandra Deutchman, Diane Walker, and George Wray will all share their experience and approaches to music, visual art, and dance.
about the exhibition:
George Wray taught painting and drawing to university art students for over 30 years, and his own work has included sculpture, neon, installation, and drawing. He has a particular enthusiasm for drawing outdoors.
Drawing is a process artists use to become acquainted with a place, an object, a figure, or an invisible curiosity. It is an initial exploration of the terrain and a way of understanding the world. While the preliminary drawing may function as preparation for a work in another medium, sometimes the drawing is a complete work in its own right.
Whether finished or preparatory, the drawing is a record of the artist’s initial greeting of the subject matter – it tells the story of an artist seeing the world through drawing.
Working Drawings runs August 8 - September 30.
