Explore drawings of nature in “Topographies of Life: Pam Rogers, Lynn Sures, Mel Watkin” by joining the curator and three exhibiting artists for a gallery talk. Please let the American University Museum know if you plan to attend by RSVPing to tinyurl.com/aumuseumkatzen
Using the medium of drawing to varied and distinctive effect, Rogers, Sures, and Watkin trace human connections to the natural world—across time and varied landscapes. The three artists work from both a consciousness of drawing’s ties to illustration and evidence; and, the medium’s unique ability to transmit the artist’s “hand” and personal response to their subject. From the deserts of Kenya, forests of the Midwest, to the Potomac watershed, these artists are deeply attuned to the mutually affecting relationship between the anthropological and natural worlds. Presented by the AU Museum Project Space. On view September 3-December 15, 2019.
