Payton McGowan Opening Reception

Alumna, Payton McGowan, will share recent drawings in a solo exhibition titled Drawing for Drawing Sake in the Fine Arts Gallery. Exhibition runs August 26 - September 13, 2019

In the age of social media, we can follow nearly any artist, and view a gallery of work with the swipe of a finger. This can be a double-edged sword. While the ability to share our work with the world is powerful, comparison can be a paralyzing force in the creative process. For the last few months, I have allowed myself to draw automatically, free of personal judgment and scrutiny, regardless of the outcome. It was at once very difficult, and in the end, extremely liberating.
