DESCRIPTION

Landscapes, seascapes, even skyscapes and dreamscapes, occupy our imagination. These worlds are presented in drawings by 16 artists on view in the works-on-paper gallery. Some works convey a sense of place using no more than a simple graphic line, as demonstrated by Roy Lichtenstein and Saul Steinberg; others inject atmospheric effects as seen in examples by Richard Artschwager, Jennifer Bartlett, and Alexis Rockman. Keith Hale's huge ethereal nightscape conjures up the magic of light in the middle of the night. Still others connect to Colorado, like this drawing by Christo. Come escape to worlds envisioned by these contemporary masters.
