Koplin Del Rio is pleased to present West Coast Drawings: Drawings VIII. A multimedia group exhibition curated by Norman Lundin on display concurrently at two West Coast locations: Koplin Del Rio in Culver City, CA and Davidson Galleries in Seattle, Washington.
This exhibition continues a tradition at Koplin Del Rio gallery that began in 1991 of hosting summer group drawing exhibitions. Conceived of the of the gallery’s distinct interest in works on paper, the original concept was to curate an in-house exhibition including many of the gallery artists, as well as invite artists from outside our regular program. This show is the eighth variation on the original “Drawings” concept and will expand the geography of the exhibition to a venue in Seattle, Davidson Gallery, with an exchange of artists between the Northern and Southern West Coast. By broadening the scope of the exhibition, both geographically and conceptually, the gallery hopes to continue the enhancement of people discovering drawings.
As part of the complementary dual format, Norman Lundin, well known as an exhibiting artist and Professor of Art, Emeritus at the University of Washington, curates the exhibition. Works chosen for the show are rooted in classical representational traditions, but veer outside the expected in both media and style.
