Pencil Me In: Selections from the Permanent Collection
September 2 - October 30, 2011
Skill with drawing is the foundation of artistic training. The Permanent Collection exhibit Pencil Me In features 51 drawings spanning the 19th through 21st century -- including rarely exhibited works by Chaim Gross, John Hemming Fry, Frederick Remington and Clyde Singer.
Born in Canton, New York, in 1861, Frederick Remington traveled throughout the west collecting clothing and artifacts and sketching scenes of the rapidly changing “Old West.” Remington would become famous for his bronze western themed sculpture.

With the simple subject of placing fruit on foil, Lowell Tolstedt’s realistic rendering in graphite, colored pencil and the unforgiving media of gold silverpoint defies belief. Tolstedt is a former Dean of Fine Arts at the Columbus College of Art and Design.
