DESCRIPTION

Exhibition Opening

“Don Copper & Charlie B Thorne: Works”

Opening Night is Friday, December 17, 2010

The idea of Don Copper and Charlie B Thorne works – as in they have presented and practiced their art together long enough to create a synergy all their own.  It just works!  This holiday season they will exhibit smaller works perfect for gift giving.  Don will present his highly charged, gestural figure drawings perfect for intimate spaces.  Charlie will offer up petite drawings capturing atmospheric vignettes of the city as only he can.  Host, Tom Robinson, will grace the scene with a 24-foot drawing, “Trust in Fate”, begun in NYC and completed in Chicago and was a year in the making.  He will also unveil his latest wood mosaic – the Dana triptych.

 

WHEN:

Opening Reception (public invited) - Friday, December 17, 2010 from 5 to 9pm.
