Opening reception with the artist Thursday, March 5th from 6-9 pm.
The Gallery is pleased to exhibit new pen and ink drawings by David Shratter, titled “Poppies, My Self, and other things of mine” . This body of intimate drawing on Kitakata paper are drawings on the life cycle of himself, his home environment, and flowers that he had brought into his home.
David writes about this body of work:
“This body of work was created over the past 15 months. The drawings are meditations on the bloom of youth, the decline toward death, ageing, identity, and the beauty and delight of the everyday objects in my life.”
David has been exhibiting for the last 20 years in Pacific Northwest galleries. The Tacoma Art Museum is featuring one of David’s paintings in an ongoing exhibit ” NorthWest in the West: Exploring Our Past” .
