National Drawing Invitational opens

Susan Rethorsts Living Room
  • "Susan Rethorst's Living Room"

The Arkansas Arts Center's "11th National Drawing Invitational," curated by Charlotta Kotik of Brooklyn, features artists who, Kotik says, are a bit obsessive with their line-making (see earlier story here). Kotik invited Reed Anderson (acrylic and ink on cut paper), Dawn Clements (ink and gouache), Ati Maier (ink, airbrush, wood stain), John O'Connor (graphite and colored pencil), Daniel Zeller (graphite, ink, acrylic), Michael Waugh (ink on mylar), Morgan O'Hara (watercolor and pencil), David Kramer (ink, gouache), Il Lee (ballpoint pen) and Karen Schiff (ink, flashe paint and thread).

The works on paper (and mylar) are monumental: Clement's drawing of choreographer Rethorst's living room wraps around two walls; Anderson's acrylic, airbrush, silkscreen and collage on cut paper "Cloud Splitter" is an enormous 111 by 99 inches.
