An Intimate View of Artists' Sketchbooks
October 28 to November 14, 2014
Curated by Howie Weiss and Marianne Sade
"The most irritating experience for an artist is to have his work criticized before it is finished."
- Andrew Wyeth
Unexpected juxtapositions. Revealing minutiae. Doodles, drawings, dreams. Launch pads of ideas: sketchbooks!
It's time again for the bold sharing of personal sketchbooks and journal highlights from the 7th Annual Sketchbook Event, at the Decker Library.
On October 27, volunteering students along with several faculty members brought their precious property to the Brown Center for the popular event, sponsored by the Drawing and Painting departments, to honor this integral part of an artist's journey and to inspire viewers.
As in the past, the library partnered by providing highlights from its broad collection on the theme, which visitors could peruse along with the student and faculty works on display. Those who may have missed it, or who want a closer look at the variety of expression, are welcome to view student selections as well as a sampling of the library's books in the Decker Library's exhibit cases through November 14. Take a peek!
Students whose work is on display include:
Spencer "Pixie" Shope
Beth Sullivan and
Seon Young Park
