Artists don’t work on paper too often anymore. At one time it was commonplace for them to do so. It wasn’t always their final work, but some of the most famous masters sketched out their ideas on paper before they began work in earnest.
We know Michelangelo created paper renderings of one of his most famous sculptures, Pieta and David, as an example. He also used paper extensively to help him visualize the Sistine Chapel.
But as a finished work, art on paper does not come about all that much, which makes the Bryan Cultural Series and Glenn Eure’s Ghost Fleet Gallery 2019 Invitational Exhibition, Works on Paper, a rare opportunity to witness the artistic process from the perspective of the artist.
The show will be on exhibit most for most of the month of October.
Works on Paper-The Challenge
This will challenge some of the finest Outer Banks artists to create a permanent work on a medium that they are not all that comfortable working with—at least as a final product.
What the Bryan Cultural series is asking is each artist to do is to create a finished work on paper only. Expect to see works using oils, watercolors, acrylics, collages collographs mixed media and more.
This is a rare opportunity for the public to get a first hand look at the creative process and how it leads to so much of the great art that surrounds us.
The artist exhibiting work are some of the finest Outer Banks artists, so the show should be as very interesting exhibit.
The Bryan Cultural Series Works on Paper will be on exhibit October 7-26 with a reception Thursday October 10 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Glenn Eure’s Ghost Fleet Gallery, 210 East Driftwood Street, Nags Head. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
