Reception: Wednesday, April 6, 12:30-2:30 pm, artist talk 1:30 pm

Line It Out piece by Gigi Conot

"Line it Out" explores the work of four artists who highlight the importance of line as an artistic tool. The work ranges from sculpture, to painting, to sewing and is connected through the dialogue of lines. The artists twist and reshape the basic element of line into unique forms, demonstrating the diversity and quality of line utilized in modern art. Their artwork pushes line beyond its foundational uses and in doing so emphasizes its higher potential.
