Lines of Thought Opening Reception

Plan Like Picasso

Fernando Botero said, “Sketching is almost everything. It is the painter's identity, his style, his conviction, and then color is just a gift to the drawing.” You can see the truth of this statement for yourself this Friday, May 26, at the first (of only two) international venues hosting Lines of Thought Opening Reception from 5:30-7:30pm at our very own New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe for free. View the original sketches of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Franz Kline and Rachel Whiteread and see how their original ideas transformed into the medium of their choice whether it was canvas, plaster, wood, stone, what have you. If you can't make it this Friday, you can see the exhibition through Sept. 27, all week long from 10am-5pm (or till 7pm on Fridays) for just $7. (Rini Grammer)

Join us for a Public Opening Reception for the exhibition Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum. We are the first of only two international venues for this exhibition.

The exhibition examines the many ways artists have used drawing as a means of recording and provoking thought from the fifteenth century to today .The internationally recognized line-up of artists is a ‘who’s who’ of artists through the centuries. The exhibition includes work by artists as diverse as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Franz Kline and Rachel Whiteread. Combining work from master artists of the past with artists working today, clearly demonstrates the common thread of drawing as the basis for creation. Drawing is one of the most effective mediums for the immediate expression and representation of an artist’s ideas. Drawing often serves as the starting point for other creative arts including painting, sculpture, even basic engineering design and architecture. The exhibition will help visitors to explore the range inherent in the medium of drawing and may even inspire them to draw as well.
