Purdue Galleries presents juried exhibit ‘Drawing Resurfaced II’

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University Galleries will display a juried drawing exhibition titled “Drawing Resurfaced II” from Nov. 13-Dec. 15 in the Fountain Gallery located in downtown Lafayette.

This exhibit will feature work from contemporary artists working in the drawing medium from across the United States. The exhibition opens at noon on Nov. 13. The opening reception will be 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 16, and will feature comments by the jurors: Liz Erlewine, director and head curator of Purdue Galleries; Eric Penington, continuing lecturer integrated studio arts; and Christine Wuenschel, associate professor integrated studio arts. Penington and Wuenschel are both part of Purdue’s Patti & Rusty Rueff School of Visual and Performing Arts.

Contemporary drawing has evolved into many different rich and complex art forms. The field today encompasses alternative processes, mixed media, collage, hybrid forms, and reinvigorated traditional forms. This exhibition features works that push the boundaries of drawing practice to explore conceptual and theoretical issues and engage in critical dialogue. Artists from across the nation were invited to submit entries for this juried exhibition.

Fountain Gallery is located at 330 Main St. in downtown Lafayette and is open noon to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. All Purdue Galleries exhibits and events are free and open to the public. For class and group visits, contact Erika Kvam at Purdue Galleries at 765-494-3061. For more information, visit or follow @PurdueGalleries on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
