UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, Offers National Drawing Exhibition
UNC Asheville in Asheville, NC, is presenting
the exhibit, Drawing Discourse, the university's second
annual national juried drawing exhibition, juried by Alex Kanevsky,
on view in the S. Tucker Cooke Gallery in Owen Hall through Feb.
Kanevsky reviewed some 529 entries submitted by 167 artists from across the nation. Just 31 pieces were accepted into the show.
A native of Russia, Kanevsky teaches at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and has exhibited across North America and Europe. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Achenbach collection, San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts, and the deYoung Museum Legion of Honor. Kanevsky has received the prestigious Pew Fellowship for painting, and his art has been reviewed by the Los Angeles Times, New York Observer and Philadelphia Inquirer.
"With this exhibit, we're examining drawing as it is practiced and defined by today's artists," said Tamie Beldue, UNC Asheville assistant professor of art and coordinator of the exhibit. "Our students, like the working artists in this exhibit, are using conventional and innovative methods, sometimes combining different approaches. The art of drawing is alive and evolving, as this exhibit will show."
