Drawing-Based Exhibition at (SCENE) Metrospace

FROM SEPTEMBER 8TH UNTIL OCTOBER 23RD, (SCENE) Metrospace presents "Raw Materials" and "Skins."

The "Raw Materials" exhibit, curated by Robert McCann, features work by Martha MacLeish, Elizabeth Huey, Christopher Lowrance, Jeffrey Allen Price, Michelle Word, and Andrew Rieder.

Robert McCann writes that "Raw Materials" explores drawing work used as preparation or sourcing for other artwork. These studio drawings exist on the edge between being the most potent expression of an artistic idea and not quite art at all.

In the "Skins" exhibit, local artists were invited to submit artwork with drawings and/or designs that could easily be seen being “lifted” and ultimately reproduced as skins for portable electronic devices.

Featured artists include Dennis Preston, Amanda Orr, Eufoe, Bethanne Harms, Thomas McArdle and Celeste Hay.

Note: A “skin” is a thin protective and/or designer layer that can be applied to the surface of a portable device, such as a laptop, iPod or cell phone, thereby giving a drab device some extra protection and personal flair.

(SCENE) Metrospace is East Lansing’s City-funded contemporary art gallery and performance space. It is located at 110 Charles St. in the colorful Division Street parking structure, next door to Georgio’s Pizza.

Regular gallery hours are Thursdays from 2-5 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 2-6 p.m. and Sundays from noon-4 p.m.; and by appointment.
