Drawn to the Middle Ground
Caroline Lavoie: Drawn to the Middle Ground: Delineating Western Landscapes. This exhibit, held at New York Mills Regional Cultural Center, examined the process involved in drawing on site: seeing, interpreting and internalizing the qualities and variations of the landscape to facilitate a form of interaction with the landscape. The themes in this exhibit were interrelated: from desert landscapes to landscapes of water/rivers, to winter and mountain landscapes; from very quick sketches to longer ones; and from the large-scale to smaller details in the landscape. These sketches were drawn directly on site in order to capture the relationship between the artist/designer and the landscape.
