M(i)(A)cro: A Contemporary Drawing Exhibition

Running from April 9, 2012 to May 20, 2012 in the Main Gallery

A Curatorial Opportunity Program exhibition curated by David Mazure.

Feature story in the Boston Globe by Nancy Shohet West

What is behind the perceived forces of the physical universe? What are the similarities and differences between the micro- and macro- cosmic universes? Can making marks on paper help unravel the conundrums of observed reality? That is what this group of six artists -- Barbara Blacharczyk (www.blacharczyk.com/), Basil El Halwagy (www.basilelhalwagy.com/), Greg Fuqua (www.gregfuqua.org/), David Mazure (www.davidmazure.com/), Doug Russell (russellfineart.com/home.html) and Sara Schneckloth (www.saraschneckloth.com/sara_schneckloth/h_o_m_e.html) are attempting to uncover -- the essence of the invisible mysteries that the universe often allows us to ponder, through the act of drawing. Though their processes may differ - from the obsessively analytical to the purely expressive - these six artists use the medium of drawing as a source of inquiry into matter, consciousness, and energy; often oscillating between clarity and chaos.
