Drawings in a Time of Social Distancing

How does isolation affect artists and influence their art?  Does it cause stagnation or new works of imagination? Jorge Posada, the curator of the Drawing in a Time of Social Distancing exhibition, sought to answer these questions. “What a line can become is amazing! As a delicate traverse of space, as the delineating edge of form, or as a gathering of energy to shape a visual metaphor, in the hands of an artist, it becomes mesmerizing,” states Jorge.

One hundred thirty-six artists have put their hands to create these lines.  View the new online exhibition hosted by Long Island City Artists on their website, www.licartists.org, from June 12 – August 12, 2020.

A wide variety of approaches to the discipline of drawing are displayed, separated into three basic categories, ​traditional, non-traditional, and interior/exterior​. My ink and watercolor sketch, Irises, is displayed in the traditional category area.
