Lined in Lead: Works In Graphite

Lined in Lead: Works In Graphite

April 13, 2013 - April 28, 2013

Apr 13, 6:00PM - 9:00PM

Too often graphite is reserved for preliminary sketches or compositional studies, but the medium possesses every facet necessary to fully realize an inspiring finished work of art.  Its simplicity is sublime and its versatility exciting.

Nucleus welcomes an impressive roster of talent known for their marks made in the medium.  Beyond the expert technique employed, this stunning collection is proof that graphite work can stir the soul.  Some works embrace tranquility, while others are disquieting.  Some are hauntingly poetic, while still others evoke a primal urge, but all featured works captivate through a manner that no other medium can convey.

Just Announced!
Artist Wesley Burt will be drawing live (7:30 to 8:30).  The drawing will be up for auction online during the opening reception.  View Online Auction Here
