Unbound: Drawings from the Book, Drawing Thought
September 6, 2022 @ 12:00 pm
From The Painting Center:
The Painting Center is pleased to present Unbound by Andrea Kantrowtiz, which will be on view from September 6 to October 1, 2023. Unbound is an exhibition of original drawings from the book, Drawing Thought: How drawing helps us observe, discover, and invent, published by MIT Press in 2022. A broad range of drawings, from observation, imagination, and everything in between, are represented in the book and in this exhibition. The varied and lively works demonstrate how drawing is a way of constructing ideas and observations as much as it is a means of expressing them. In the book, Drawing Thought, Andrea Kantrowitz interweaves drawings and text, integrating recent findings in cognitive psychology and neuroscience with accounts of her own artistic and teaching practices. Through her examples, she aims to inspire others to use drawing to extend and reflect on their own thought processes. This exhibition provides an opportunity to look behind the scenes, to view some of the original lush artwork that became the book. Andrea Kantrowitz, an artist and educator, is Associate Professor and Director of the Art Education Program at SUNY New Paltz. She leads workshops and symposia on art and cognition around the world.
