Drawing from Perception VIII

Drawing from Perception is a national juried drawing exhibition organized by Wright State University’s Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries and Department of Art and Art History. Its aim is to highlight the finest contemporary examples of drawing from direct observation using traditional media.

Drawings by more than sixty artists from across the country will be featured in the upcoming Drawing from Perception VIII exhibition at Wright State University’s Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries. The exhibition opens with an artist talk and reception on January 21, 2018, and runs from January 16 through February 25, 2018.

Begun in 1996 by Wright State Art and Art History Professors Kim Vito and Diane Fitch, Drawing from Perception is a recurring juried national show focusing on the discipline of drawing from observation. For this eighth installment, Professor Penny Park has joined Kim Vito in curating the exhibition, inviting noted Massachusetts College of Art teacher and artist Catherine Kehoe to serve as juror. Kehoe’s selections offer visitors an exhibition representing a diversity of approaches, scale, material, and subject matter.
