Bo Bartlett: Forty Years of Drawing
January 22 - March 20
The collection of works gathered here marks the first major exhibition of Bo Bartlett’s drawings. These works span forty years of the artist’s career, revealing an intimate peek into a side of the artists’ life and oeuvre rarely seen by the public. It contains not only drawings in graphite, but also more colorful works in gouache. The drawings strike a potent counterpoint to the larger-than-life paintings that have defined Bo’s career. As much as some of these drawings may reveal the embryonic stages of larger ideas, these works are not intended as a means to an end. They are autonomous records, existing as their own articulations and representations of movement in time.
