Lineal Investigations: New Directions in Drawing

BRIDGEPORT, CT.-Housatonic Museum of Art is presenting Lineal Investigations featuring artists from Bridgeport, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, California and Canada. Lineal Investigations opens Friday, November 9 and continues through December 21, 2007. A reception for the artists will be held Friday, November 9, from 5:30 pm until 7pm. This event is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.

Featured works include traditional portraiture but created on a colossal scale by Bridgeport artist Paul Kaiser, floor drawing made with gaffer’s tape by Manchester artist David Borawski and three dimensional drawings by Susan Shutan of Hamden , Jane Miller of Guilford and Glenn LaVertu of Providence , Rhode Island .

Lineal Investigations pushes the boundaries of the traditional definition of “drawing” this exhibit but nevertheless features quieter works with detailed drawings by Melissa Tubbs of Alabama and Patricia Smith of East Branch, New York. Artist Richard Deon of Dover Plains , New York uses commercial illustration paired with a linear structure to create his visual narratives while Henry Mandell of Mamaroneck works with digital materials-vector drawings-to explore the dynamic tension between order and disorder within visual systems.

Eric Van Arx of New Jersey creates linear drawings in iron and Kathy Desmond of Massachusetts combines drawing with installation to create environments. All in all, this show redefines “drawing” by mapping new terrain.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 5:30 pm. Saturday, 9-3 pm and Sunday Noon until 4pm.
