Art opening reception and drawing salons: Unpremeditated Natures
Russ Havard, an artist residing in Lufkin, and David McClain, an artist who lives in Houston, debut new work at Gallery 1724.
Havard's drawings arrive from a meditative, intuitive process seeking to make sense out of uncertainty and to serve as a record of noticing and letting go. McClain explores spontaneity and the active moment of creation with his works. Both artists work with additive and subtractive methods, formal elements and the abandonment of formal elements.
The exhibition will be accompanied by three Sundays of drawing salons on Oct. 28 led by Russ Havard, Nov. 11 led by Merilee Minshew and Dec. 9 led by David McClain.
The exhibition and activities are curated by Emily Sloan. On view through Jan 26.
