June 6–July 29, 2016
This June and July the Stamp Gallery teams up with Laboratory Research Gallery for a summertime drawing experience. An exhibition of drawings and sketches by graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Maryland takes visitors down the rabbit hole of the creative process. Selections vary wildly in size, orientation, attitude, and finish. Some drawings articulate plans for projects in other media—sculpture, installation, and performance—while others materialize intuitive, improvisational, or rule-based thinking.
A communal drawing table stocked with supplies beckons visitors to make their own work to take home or add to the installation.
