Gallery 210: Saturday, 12 September 2015

Sharon Callner - Drawing For Two Hands

The reception will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2015, from 5-7 P.M
at Gallery 210.

Gallery 210 is pleased to celebrate the life and work of artist, mentor, teacher, and professor Sharon Callner at Gallery 210."Drawing with Two Hands will include paintings and drawings featuring 25 years of work.

Sharon lived the axiom "Life is movement." It was that physicality that brought life into her work. Her representational works fulfilled the sublime, tragic potential of art. These along with other works, her art would be seen in the Chicago area as well as at various venues around the Midwest.

Sharon loved teaching, and her students loved her in return. Her teaching philosophy was, "learn craft while liberating one's curiosity." She insisted artists pursue their vision by asking: "What is your relationship to the society in which you live?" Sharon rigorously taught anatomy, color, value, and all the elements of design. She repeatedly said, "You must draw a 1000 miles of line..." of which she vastly exceeded. 

Hours: Tuesdays - Saturdays 11 A.M. - 5 P.M.
