About the Drawing Show: Since 1979 the Drawing Show has been a widely anticipated hallmark of Boston Center for the Art’s programming. This juried exhibition has allowed BCA to work with more than five hundred artists and invited curators. Proposals are welcome from all artists and designers who explore drawing as a medium in their work.
Curator’s Statement: Truth Teller. Observer. Disrupter. Activator of Possibility.
Since the first cave drawings ages ago, people have been trying to decide on the most accurate titles to describe the function of artists in society. The sentiments behind this exhibition are fueled by the James Baldwin’s quote, “The role of the artist is the same as the role of the lover. If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you can’t see.” In order to lift the veils of consciousness through their works, artists themselves are shaped into the role of lover by their past, present, and future.

For the past seven summers, I have had the opportunity to work with high school students during BU's Visual Arts Summer Institute. Each summer, I haul my art supplies to the 5th floor of 855 Commonwealth Avenue and set up a second home. The studio space I have used the past two summer faces east and has incredible views of downtown Boston.
When I was a student at BU, I remember being surprised at the amazing sunsets that I could watch from Comm. Ave. Living in a city can be disorienting and it's easy to feel disconnected from nature. I loved taking time each day to stop and enjoy the view.
The routine of going into the studio every day and seeing my work with fresh eyes is an exciting part of my process. I love being able to spread out my supplies and give myself time and space to find new connections between my ideas and materials.
Over the summer, worked on a few new bodies of work including Paper Quilts and Cycles. I am back in my apartment now and have been making some new Paper Quilts, working with friends to create new college pieces, and brainstorming some ideas for new projects. Stay tuned...
