 bonnie hull’s ‘on the way’ blog tipped us off. she wondered what her readers thought of ‘making a mark’, a show of drawings she was in at the arts center in corvallis. we went to see.  here i am looking at a bonnie hull.

her marks close up.

3

dashes, diagonal raining dashes, dots, lines, cross stitches. as they came.  joyful. accepted. adding up. at least that’s sloy’s take looking at this one.

4

my favorite. another of bonnie hull’s.

5

 weaves, curves, flecks & spatters. cats cradles.

6

BIG stuff done small. seismographic barb wire. paint splatters. how did she make those droozley, dimensional  lines?

looking back i see for the first time how 2 huge, loose, in your face andrew myers’ mixed media on paper pieces work. from a distance.

11

gina wilson’s handbuilt ceramics with clay slips. chalky, cubistic, lumpen…all good things.

if we had a pamphlet that guided visitors through the pieces in this show (only numbered, not identified by names) i could say what this piece of gina wilson’s was called. this is its nose side.

13

& on the un-nose side.

nic actually showed me how to look at art. until i saw how he did it, i would never have guessed that you put your nose right into it & looked at the marks/strokes.
