Gallery Talk with Between the Lines juror Linn Meyers

On January 10th, our juror Linn Meyers gave a wonderful gallery talk during the reception for Between the Lines. She spoke her process an reasoning behind her selections for the exhibition, specifically how "Drawing has long been understood to be a preparatory medium – artists have made drawings in preparation for making works in other mediums such as painting, printmaking or sculpture. Drawing has been for some artists and viewers synonymous with “sketching.”...The distinction long made between drawing, painting, and sculpture continues to become less and less important to both viewers and artists. The works in this exhibition explore, through both imagery and materials, the way artists are using drawing as a primary mode of expression in the 21st century."
