Drawn to Words Exhibit

(Text from Buzzword Newsletter)

Drawn to Words: Drawings & Illustrations from the Bluegrass Drawing Society Goes on Display November 23rd

Monday, November 23, 2009-Saturday, December 26, 2009 the Bluegrass Drawing Society (formerly known as the Winchester Drawing Society) will exhibit drawings and illustrations that have been inspired by works of literature, poetry, song lyrics, and philosophy. The artwork in Drawn to Words represents a variety of styles and techniques ranging from abstraction and realism to art nouveau- inspired illustration, and the sequential art found in graphic novels and comics. Some of the artwork was created in response to the various subjects and genres found in written sources while other pieces were created from the artist’s own ‘words to inspire’. Featured in this exhibit are works from BDS members Rebecca Chamberlain, Denise Knoebel, Christopher Newman, and Cindy Williams.

The Bluegrass Drawing Society Exhibit will be on display in the Library Community Room during normal Library hours, except times when the room is being used for a meeting. There will be a reception for the artists, Friday, December 11, from 5:30-7 pm. Please plan to attend and meet some of the most talented artists in the Bluegrass.
