CarolynBerry DancingbluelinesCarolyn Berry - Dancing Blue Lines

Back for a second year, we invite artists to consider the shape, weight, length, movement and definition of the line, which forms the basis of so many things including works of art, architecture, nature and landscapes, DNA helixes, and so much more. How do you define, “Drawing the Line”?

We invite line drawings, graphite works, ink and pen interpretations and watercolors marks, just to name a few. Additionally, we are interested in seeing works in their raw and early stage forms. Do you put together studies for a final work that will be complete in the future? These early concepts often have a power and energy to them that comes through in their line form. These are all ideas to reflect on, and we welcome other statements or ideas about drawing the line. This exhibit is highly open to interpretation and we welcome varied translations of this concept.
