"Works on Paper" Exhibit at Webster University’s Hunt Gallery
The exhibit, "Works on Paper: Drawn from the Webster University Art Collection" is presented at Webster University's Hunt Gallery. Consisting of art works pulled from the collection, the exhibition focuses on the numerous works on paper, including drawings and prints by well-known artists. The collection has grown in recent years with very generous gifts from local collectors and artists. Even though the University displays a large portion of these works around its many campuses, there are still beautiful and interesting works in storage and this particular exhibition allows for these wonderful pieces to be viewed within a lightly themed context. Works on Paper will feature almost thirty drawings and prints by many of the artists who have made their mark during the course of nineteenth-and twentieth-century art, from Susan Rothenberg, David Hockney, Red Grooms, Claes Oldenberg, Mary Cassat, Nicholas Africano, Philip Evergood, Elizabeth Bly and Ford Beckman, among others. This two-week exhibition hopes to focus on the many aspects of the practice of drawing, collage and printmaking, recognizing the fundamental stage that these mediums represent in an artist’s creative process. The core of this exhibition focuses on the human figure and includes a combination of fully realized works and preliminary studies related to painting, sculpture, and printmaking.
