Roberta Waddell's selection of 49 works from the Kentler Flatfiles by 28 artists suggests the diversity of mark-making languages and media in drawing today.
"Artists of all stripes and practices in recent years have mixed and combined media--painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, digital processes, film and sculpture--in ways that defy easy categorization. Inherent in the autographic touch of a drawing, however, there is consistently an intimacy and freshness that encourage quiet study and close examination."
- Roberta Waddell
The Kentler Flatfiles were founded in 1990 as an essential element of the gallery. The Flatfiles, a compendium of artworks by over 160 artists, have become an important resource for artists, collectors, curator and the general public by stressing the importance of drawing and work on paper in contemporary art today. The Flatfiles are located behind the gallery and are available for viewing by appointment.
Roberta Waddell was Curator of Prints at the New York Public Library from 1985 until 2008 after serving as Curator of Prints at the Worcester Art Museum, and Curator of Graphic Arts at the Toledo Museum of Art.
A brochure with an essay by Roberta Waddell accompanies the exhibition.
