Hampden Gallery's Collabrative Drawing Project & Exhibition

I first met artist Kathleen Cammarata a year or so ago at a visit to her X/O Studio in Lowell, MA

I really admired her drawing techniques which were rich and layered. I was excited to hear that she would be leading a Collaborative Drawing Project in conjunction with her solo show at Hampden Gallery on the UMass Campus and
am very pleased to be invited to participate in this project & exhibition.
Led by Kathleen Cammarata With Participating Artists;
Alicia Hunsicker
Karen Loomis
Mihai Zgondoiu
Kerry O'Grady
Irene Ishomirsky

When two or more artists work on the same drawing a new kind of imagery emerges.
The artists give up ownership of the end product,thereby breaking new ground and discovering
new aesthetic choices.

The collaborating artists include a recent BFA graduate and a third year candidate in the MFA program of the UMASS Art Department, as well as 2 professional artists from Massachusetts and
a visiting artist from Transylvania, Romania who is also a PhD candidate in Bucharest.

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 3 from 5:30 - 7 PM

When: Saturday, April 3 - Wednesday, April 28 -

No comments:

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
