February 12–March 27: Rick Shaefer: Drawing the Line. Working primarily in velvety black-and-white, large-format compositions and multiple-paneled pieces are where Rick Shaefer feels most at home. With his background in photography influencing his careful tonal decisions, the Connecticut-based artist often chooses charcoal on vellum to execute his striking and detailed depictions of both animal and nature. Through an elegant use of line work, Shaefer’s subjects exude texture and dimensionality in both the physical and emotional realm.
