Six metalpoint artists will be showing at Didier Aaron Gallery in New York City. Myself, Susan Schwalb, Sherry Camhy, Lauren Amalia Redding, Robyn Ellenbogen, and Didier Aaron’s own phenomenal Victor Koulbak are featured in the exhibition SILVERPOINT, organized to showcase the new book on metalpoint drawing out earlier this year from Routledge.
I am offering a one-day workshop in silverpoint technique through the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists this April 27th. In addition, I will be offering a short discussion and demo of metalpoint, along with a book-signing at Meininger Art Supply on Broadway in Denver on April 6.
Metalpoint artist Susan Schwalb and I have written have written a book on metalpoint technique, due out this December from Routledge. Silverpoint and Metalpoint Drawing: A Complete Guide to the Medium is the first comprehensive guide to the medium, fully illustrated in color with chapters on technique, history and a gallery of contemporary metalpoint masters. Contributions by Carol Prusa and Thea Burns, with a foreword by Bruce Weber. Order it directly from the publisher here or from Amazon.com.
I will be showing 18 of my zoological drawings at Spark Gallery in Denver in an exhibition titled Infestation which opens January 17 and runs through February 10, 2019. The exhibition space will also feature shows from artists Susan Rubin and Carol Till, friends of mine who also work from natural subjects.
My Wraps drawing, Red River, will be featured in Works on Paper in the exhibition space at the Art Students League of Denver this December. The work, inspired by Fra Fillippo Lippi’s metalpoint drawing of a female saint in the British Museum, features a home-made red iron oxide and rabbit-skin glue ground applied to paper, and the silverpoint line is accented with strokes of white gouache.
I exhibited seven drawings in the exhibition Silver Lining: Contemporary Works in Silverpoint at the Ilges Gallery of Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia from October 8 - November 17, 2018. The exhibition, which traveled from the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art in Laurel, Mississippi, features six masters of metalpoint, including Jeffrey Lewis, myself, Carol Prusa, Susan Schwalb, Koo Schadler, and Aj Smith. One of my works in the show, Upwrap, was purchased by the Lauren Rogers Museum for its collection.
