Ancient Skills Endure
"Ancient Skills Endure" is a pastel, pencil, and graphite drawing by Gallery 53 artist Rose Devlin that was awarded 1st place in the 97th Annual Fall Show. Juror Karen Israel describes this piece as follows: "This black and white drawing, a nature scene, had a wonderful abstract quality which was quickly grounded by the branches which broke the picture plane and feathered out onto the mat. The artist handled this well, as it was done delicately and with a diagonal and asymmetry which added to the primary drawing. I enjoyed looking at the details, lovely leaves and crevices placed smartly within the composition," Framed and double matted 24" x 20" piece.
