Art from National Invitationals Exhibited Free
at CSUDH Gallery

Carson, CA— “By Any Means: Works from the National Drawing Invitationals,” will run from Feb. 8 through March 8 at the California State University, Dominguez Hills University Art Gallery.

The show is free and open to the public.

The exhibit consists of 31 representative drawings from the Eppink Gallery at Emporia State University in Kansas. The collection is made up of purchases from each of the last 25 years of the annual invitational, and includes the works of Donald Roller Wilson, Janis Mars Wunderlich, Robert Stackhouse, Phillip Pearlstein, Robert Cottingham, and Harvey Breverman.

Kathy Zimmerer, CSUDH Gallery director, says that the exhibit “demonstrates that contemporary drawing maintains its vitality through continuous reinvention of the form. Many of the artists are of national repute, with many styles represented, including such disparate styles as Bay Area funk by Northern California artist William Wiley and pop art, as represented by Robert Cottingham’s drawing, 'While-U-Wait.'” The art, she says, ranges from “rapidly executed sketches that reveal the artist’s creative process to highly finished drawings that are a work of art in themselves.”

A reception will be held opening day from 6 to 8 p.m. A gallery tour by Diane Hayden, artist and drawings expert, begins at 6:30 p.m. This exhibit, as well as other arts events, are sponsored by the Carson Fine Arts and Historical Commission, with additional funding by the Instructionally Related Activities Committee of the CSUDH Associated Students, Inc. Since 1991, the city commission has sponsored one exhibition per year at the gallery, as well as supporting the Theater Arts Department and the Carson-Dominguez Symphony, which is conducted by CSUDH emeritus professor of music Frances Steiner.
Admission is free to all gallery events.  The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The campus is located at 1000 E. Victoria St., off Avalon Boulevard between the 91 and 405 freeways. There is street parking, subject to availability, or visitor parking permits may be purchased for $3 at the yellow dispensing machines at the front of each campus lot.
