ARTS 3140: Figure Drawing
February 10 - 28, 2021

Throughout the Fall 2020 semester, instructor Leslie Barlow offered her advanced drawing students a variety of open-ended prompts to encourage imaginative explorations of the figure. This selection of works features mixed-media approaches to drawing that collide fact with fiction, intertwines the personal and the political, and show sensitivity to mark-making—capturing our most vulnerable moments. Artists in the exhibition include Lauren Bastien, Leslie Barlow, Nick Dolan, Moqui Joy, Abigail Lewis, Miguel Perez, Gretchen Pickering, Barbara Shaterian, Bec Skelton, Naomi Tu, and Alison Winslow. Learn more about ARTS 3140: Figure Drawing, now being offered with Leslie this coming Fall 2021.
