February 16 – March 22, 2012
opening reception: Feb 16, 7-9pm
Sketching is fundamental to the artist’s process. It is used for recording ideas, marking observations, or developing visual plans. Regardless of the medium in which an artist may work, the sketchbook is generally a basic first step of creation.
With “Between the Sheets”, The Distillery Gallery has invited artists to display work that was not quite intended for exhibition. Entire sketchbooks, loose sheets of paper, scribbles on bar napkins, even printouts of digital renderings will be exhibited in this unique show of working concepts, visual studies, and rough ideas. Sketches will surely range from what appear to be finished works of art to seemingly meaningless doodles. This intimate look into the work behind the work aims to reveal that sketches and sketching techniques can vary just as much as finished works. The show will simultaneously highlight a moment in their processes that the artists are on the same page.
