ARTIST TALK: Saturday, January 14, 2PM by Marilyn Bardet, Elizabeth Sher, Becca Smidt, and Cyrus Tilton

From doodles to preparatory drawings and schematics, the artists in Nothing Extraneous have used the act of drawing in its many forms. Explore the exhibit on Saturday, January 14 at 2PM, with artists Elizabeth Sher and Cyrus Tilton, along with William Harsh's widow Marilyn Bardet and Sam Smidt's daughter Becca Smidt, as they share how each artist used drawing in their practice and how, at times, it was a more freeing form of self expression than their usual medium.
