Christine Hiebert at the Morgan Library & Museum

Contemporary approaches to drawing are often experimental and expansive. By absorbing and building upon the legacy of avant-garde experimentation in the first half of the twentieth century, artists from the 1950s to the present have pushed beyond the boundaries of traditional draftsmanship through their use of chance, unconventional materials, and new technologies. By Any Means brings together about twenty innovative works from the Morgan’s collection, including many recent acquisitions, by artists such as John Cage, Sol LeWitt, Vera Molnar, Robert Rauschenberg, Betye Saar, Gavin Turk, Jack Whitten and Christine Hiebert. Through May 12, 2019.

Jill O'Bryan solo exhibition at Texas State Galleries

This exhibition pairs Jill O’Bryan’s Ground and Breath Drawings, two separate but related bodies of work. The Ground Drawings (or “Frottages”) are made in New Mexico’s high desert, where the artist rests oversized sheets of paper along the mesa and then rubs them with graphite. In so doing, O’Bryan renders an intricate impression not only of a moment within the rock’s geologic formation, but also of her singular interaction with the ground. Through September 19, 2018.
