The Question of Drawing   An illustrated lecture by artist Kate Beck.

Maine artist Kate Beck’s work is included in   the OMAA exhibition “The Question of Drawing.” Her work reflects her interest in “(the) pure aesthetic of line as an element of both color and substance with a wide range of thought and feeling.” The artist will speak about her work in drawing and the significance of drawing in a contemporary art context. Widely exhibited, Kate has had recent solo exhibitions at the Pelavin Gallery in New York City, Icon Contemporary Art in Brunswick, Maine and Kunst-Element, Waalre, The Netherlands.

I agree. When you enter a museum it should be like you enter portal where inside is a different space and time. Visiting a museum should be a journey. When we say a journey the experience must be memorable and exciting.
