Art from National Invitationals Exhibited
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.
