The Luster of Silver: Contemporary Metalpoint Drawings

Exhibition Website

Nov 3 2017 - Dec 31 2017

Swope Art Museum

Terre Haute, IN

This exhibition from the collection of the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science will feature 20 silverpoint drawings and also metalpoint drawing tools. Unlike charcoal and pencil, silverpoint does not lend itself to sketching or correcting mistakes. The silverpoint line must be precisely drawn the first time. The artist makes darker tones in these delicate images by cross hatching or building up line over line.
