Koplin Del Rio is pleased to present West Coast Drawings: Drawings VIII.
A multimedia group exhibition curated by Norman Lundin on display
concurrently at two West Coast locations: Koplin Del Rio in Culver
City, CA and Davidson Galleries in Seattle, Washington.
exhibition continues a tradition at Koplin Del Rio gallery that began
in 1991 of hosting summer group drawing exhibitions. Conceived of the
of the gallery’s distinct interest in works on paper, the original
concept was to curate an in-house exhibition including many of the
gallery artists, as well as invite artists from outside our regular
program. This show is the eighth variation on the original “Drawings”
concept and will expand the geography of the exhibition to a venue in
Seattle, Davidson Gallery, with an exchange of artists between the
Northern and Southern West Coast. By broadening the scope of the
exhibition, both geographically and conceptually, the gallery hopes to
continue the enhancement of people discovering drawings.
part of the complementary dual format, Norman Lundin, well known as an
exhibiting artist and Professor of Art, Emeritus at the University of
Washington, curates the exhibition. Works chosen for the show are
rooted in classical representational traditions, but veer outside the
expected in both media and style.
