Pen & Ink

March 1 – March 24, 2018


Union Street Gallery is looking for works that highlight the use of pen & ink in the creation of representational and non-representational works of art. Artists are encouraged to submit works that showcase their unique and skillful use of the material through pens, brushes, and any hue of ink.While we imagine a majority of the work will be two-dimensional, three-dimensional works that the artist feels meet the call are welcome for submission.

About the Juror – Kate Lewis

Kate Lewis constructs tales as tall as the buildings she renders while fusing art and architecture to chronicle life experiences. The purposeful selection of structures underlines the belief that walls silently absorb the stories lived within them; that much like us, they become a product of their environment.
