Exhibition: "National Silverpoint Invitational 2015", Little Rock, Arkansas

  • Greg Thompson Fine Art 429 Main Street Little Rock, Arkansas USA (map)

I was honoured with inclusion in the “National Silverpoint Invitational 2015” exhibition hosted at Little Rock, AK by Hearn Fine Art and Greg Thompson Fine Art. Dr. Ann Wagner, Curator of Drawing at the Arkansas Arts Center,  gave a gallery talk on silverpoint during the exhibition. Fellow artist, Marjorie Williams-Smith very kindly sent me photographs of the drawings displayed in the two art galleries.

This Little Rock show was part of the celebration in 2015 to mark a magical historical metalpoint show entitled “Drawing in Silver and Gold: From Leonardo to Jasper Johns”. This exhibition, combining collections from both museums, was at the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC  and later opened at the British Museum on September 10th until early December.  I am very thrilled to be mentioned in the extraordinarily beautiful catalogue as being one of three North American artists who have been promoting this medium.
