DRAWING BOARD

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. 

Artwork on view by Sobia Ahmad, Jasmine Alexander, Bekí Basch, Zac Benson, C.W. Brooks, Hugh Bryant, Rachael Carruthers, Grace DeWitt, Meirav Finn, Kevin Hird, Dana Hollister, Raino Isto, Nilou Kazemzadeh, Rachel Lebo, Vanessa Liminski, Grant McFarland, Korey Richardson, Dusty Rose, Leah Schaperow, Dane Winkler, Dominique Wohrer, and Jowita Wyszomirska

Drawing Board remounts and expands on Preparation as Practice: Current Grad Student Drawings, the inaugural project of the Laboratory Research Gallery on view January–February 2016.

Special thanks to the Department of Art and the Art & Learning Center

Drawing Board features a Pop-Up Art Library made possible by THE ART LIBRARY located at 2213 Parren Mitchell Art Sociology Building at the University of Maryland. Special thanks to THE ART LIBRARY for making possible the exhibition's reading room, where visitors can enjoy a selection of books related to themes explored by the artworks on view.

About

Located on the first floor of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union—Center for Campus Life at the University of Maryland, College Park, The Stamp Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art, especially the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The Gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging, academically engaging, and attuned to broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming, the Gallery offers outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunities. It functions as a laboratory where emerging artists and curators experiment and work through their ideas. The Gallery’s programming aims to emphasize the importance of process to contemporary artistic practice and to provide a forum for dialogue.
