      A Study of Life: Drawings by TAMU-CC Students

      K Space Contemporary is pleased to present A Study of Life: Drawings by TAMU-CC Students. The human figure is one of the most enduring themes in the visual arts and is an essential component of an art education. Drawing from the direct observation of a live model has been a practice of studio artists for centuries. Gestural sketches record the model’s movement and expressive energy and longer poses allow the student to render the human form with accurate proportions, value patterning and surface quality.

      This group of drawings represents the work created at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi during the 2019 summer LIFE DRAWING course. Students worked from plaster casts of the human features, did anatomy studies to become familiar with the skeletal structure and drew from the live human figure. The class concluded with the students presenting a Metaphorical Self-Portrait that showcased their mastery of drawing and expressed a conceptual presentation of themselves. The class was instructed by Meg Aubrey, Assistant Professor of Art.

      The exhibition opens with ArtWalk, August 2, 6 to 9 pm, and continues through August 10. Gallery hours are 11am to 5 pm, Wednesday through Saturday.
