Organized by Western Massachusetts artist Steve Wilda, this exhibition explores the diverse medium of graphite, a versatile art material that is easily accessible to a broad range of audiences.
The exhibit includes 62 works on paper by artists renowned for their contemporary and representational drawings. Featured artists include Lesley Cohen, Lisa Henry, Ryan Jacque, Elizabeth Kostojohn, Christina Mastrangelo, Scott Tulay, and Steve Wilda (Massachusetts), along with Paul Batch, Doug Gillette, Luciana Heineman, Bill Simpson, and Alan Spellman (Connecticut) and Terry Miller (Maryland). The exhibit also features 14 sculptural representations by Jennifer Maestre and Dalton Ghetti, who both use pencils to create imaginative and intricate contemporary sculptures.
