I’ll Be Your Mirror: Recent Work by Sarah Smelser and Jonathan Higgins, an exhibition of monotypes by Smelser and metalpoint drawings by Higgins, will be on view at The Box Gallery, Galesburg, IL February 8 – March 9, 2018.
Utilizing transparent veils of color and thin Asian papers, Sarah Smelser creates prints with an abstract sensibility that are informed by drawing and that reference cartography, the body, cycles in nature, and mundane objects.
In his metalpoint drawings, Jonathan Higgins uses simple forms, line, repetition, pattern, fields of texture and tone, allowing the materials and process of drawing to become part of the subject of the work, while bringing a contemporary sensibility to a Renaissance drawing technique.
An artist’s talk will take place on Thursday, February 8th at 4:15 pm at the Whitcomb Art Center at Knox College, followed by a reception at the gallery.
The Box Gallery | 308 E Simmons Street, Galesburg, IL. Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday 1-6.
