DRAWING CENTER STUDIO


Passage I by Elena Peteva

 

VISITING ARTISTS WORKSHOP
ON SEEING: Figure and Space


One-day Drawing Workshop with Brett Eberhardt and Elena Peteva

COURSE CLOSED


[ Registration info here ]

 

ON SEEING: Figure and Space will be co-taught by Brett Eberhardt and Elena Peteva, husband and wife artists and professors with works to be exhibited in two upcoming Manifest exhibits. The Figure and Space workshop will focus on ways of seeing, objectively analyzing, and using figure ground relationships to aid in their accurate mutual construction. Objects will be related to the live model in the spacious Drawing Center studio, and participants will explore the space of, in, between, and around the subject matter. Through this process, participants will gain a renewed appreciation for the power of the 'nothing' that joins everything.

Both Elena and Brett have exhibited in several Manifest exhibitions, and also had work included in multiple volumes of the International Drawing Annual and International Painting Annual (including the  just released INPA 1). This year Brett's painting Red Plate (after Lopez) won the second annual Manifest Prize. The painting will be on view at Manifest Gallery from December 16 - January 13, 2012. Elena will also have a drawing on view in TAPPED, an exhibit that runs alongside The Manifest Prize exhibition.

The opening reception for both exhibits is 6-9p.m. the night before this workshop, and the artists will be in attendance.
