Preparations: Artists' Sketchbooks and Journals
Much of the development for an artwork happens well before the brush meets canvas, the hand meets clay, or the finger meets camera, etc. These preliminary inspirations and concepts go mostly unnoticed and unappreciated. This exhibit, curated by gallery director Tim Massey, brings to light the methods artists employ to inform themselves of the possibilities for their as yet unrealized works. Artists providing access to their journals include Fred Burton, Memphis, TN; Gage Opdenbrouw, San Francisco, CA; Susan Kemenyffy, McKean, PA; and Kristin Reger, New York, NY.
