Contemporary surreal drawings and paintings, curated by Archer Daugherty.

Albuquerque artist Archer Dougherty curated this exhibition of contemporary surreal drawings and paintings. Dougherty had the artists explore the meaning of the word penumbra using a greyscale palette. A 'penumbra' is the ghostly halo of shadow that surrounds a region of complete darkness.   The images in this exhibition are refined and delicate, yet bordering on the grotesque and frightening elements of human, animal, and spiritual realms. The artwork in PENUMBRA brings together classical portraiture, chiaroscuro, and contemporary surrealism that represent the artists’ innate spiritual, emotional, and intellectual forces. Twenty-five international artists, ranging from Europe to the United States to Indonesia, are coming together to present their ideas relating to shadows, darkness, and everything in between.
