"Explore This - 2001: The Colored Pencil Society of America - First National Experimental Exhibition"
2001-04-20 until 2001-05-27
West Bend Art Museum
West Bend, WI, USA United States of America

Explore This - 2001, the 1st international juried experimental exhibition by the Colored Pencil Society of America, CPSA, features works by artists from the USA and Canada. Two and three dimensional colored pencil art enhanced with various traditional and non-traditional mixed media applications are on exhibition from April 18 through May 27.

The selection and awards juror is Dennis Adrian, noted art historian and critic, who is Assistant Curator of prints and drawings at the Museum of the Art Institute of Chicago. Mr. Adrian has written for Art In America, Art Forum, Art News, Art International and maintained a standing art critique column as Art Critic for the Chicago Daily News.

> Established in 1990, CPSA is the first and only nonprofit arts organization devoted exclusively to promoting art of the colored pencil. It represents more than 1600 members from 16 countries, many of which are award winning professional artists. In addition to their newest experimental exhibitions, CPSA offers opportunities to all artists working in 100% colored pencil through their CPSA Annual Juried International Exhibitions held in major metropolitan areas in the USA. These fine colored pencil artworks brought about an increasingly positive response to the art of drawing.

Versatility of the colored pencil medium encompasses an array of style, subject, and distinct manner of mark making from painterly to fine linear quality. Art historians and collectors have long hailed the value of drawing as the purest form of artistic expression. Art of the colored pencil is widely recognized as an emerging art form.

An experimental workshop in West Bend on April 21 by Vera Curnow, CPSA Founder, will explore unconventional applications of colored pencil.
