Gregg and Marquis Galleries

The Silverpoint Exhibition

December 2 - 21, 2013

Opening Reception on Wednesday, December 4, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

The first silverpoint exhibition in this country, The Fine Line: Drawing with Silver in America, was organized by Bruce Weber at the Norton Gallery and School of Art, in 1985. In its catalog, he wrote, “In the hands of draftsmen of skill and vision silverpoint is a medium of possibility, awaiting still further investigation.”  It took twenty-one more years before an exhibition of metalpoint took place at The Telfair Museum of Art, Savannah, GA, in 2006 and three more before the one in the  Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science, in 2009.  In 2015, The National Gallery, Washington, D.C. in conjunction with The British Museum, England is planning a landmark metalpoint exhibit. It will focus largely on historic works and contain a limited number of images from the 1900s to the present.

   “The Silverpoint Exhibition” at the NAC is a pivotal investigation of the art of silverpoint by contemporary artists. The artists in this exhibition have been lured by the magic of the medium, enticed into delving into the search for the perfect formula for the perfect surface and tempted into exploring the haunting qualities of silverpoint with their unique vision. They are free from the limitations of materials that bound the old masters.

Margaret Krug: I Need Water and Time

February 1 - 21, 2013

Opening Reception: Wednesday February 6, 6 - 8 PM

Margaret Krug is an award winning painter, art instructor, and published author who received her M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her current work references classical landscape motifs and Italian literature-aide-mémoires that recall her yearly sojourns to Tuscany. Her paintings' magic lies in their making. A rare alchemist, Krug employs Renaissance studio techniques that have all but vanished from contemporary art practice.
