Beacon Arts Building presents Lineamenta, an exhibition to examine and expand
on the definition of drawing. This group of work by different artists from Los
Angeles to Geneva seeks to redefine drawing, not as an abstract means to an end
but as a finite genre, encompassing many different types of media. Drawing is
commonly understood as a vague plan or a sketch of an idea for something else. It
is this limbo of undefined territory that the work in this show will inhabit, placing
drawing in the spotlight as finished work, using sculpture, video, installation and
both traditional and unusual drawing techniques throughout the gallery.
Artists included are:
China Adams, Steven Bankhead, Fay Ray, GeoVanna Gonzales, Kate Harding,
Doug Harvey, Flora Kao, Jed Lind, Nuttaphol Ma, Jessica Minckley, Sandeep
Mukherjee, M.A. Peers, Antoine Roegiers, Leigh Salgado, Amy Sarkisian, Lisa C
Soto and Tim Youd.
Lineamenta opens Saturday, May 12th and runs through June 24th 2012. Exhibition
special events include an opening reception on Saturday, May 12th, 6:00 – 9:00pm
and a closing reception on Sunday, June 24th, 1:00 – 4:00pm, which will include a
