an online exhibition

The title of the exhibition, Take a Line for a Walk, is based on a quote by Paul Klee: “A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” The title refers to how drawing reveals itself through the process of making as a means of discovery and communication in its purest form. The title also reflects the idea that though we are all homebound, our minds and creativity are free to wander and explore. The exhibit contains drawings by each Musa member plus drawings by an artist invited by each Musa member. No restrictions have been placed on the size or media used in the work and each artist was left to define what drawing means to them.

Featuring the work of: 

Roya Amigh, Nina Bellucci, Niels Burger,  Liz Davenport, Claire Gerard, Jill Grimes, Alison Judd, Marta Kaemmer, Alla Lazebnik, David Mar, Kelly Popoff, and Mark Schepens

Quick, Quick, Slow pairs the work of Musa Collective members, Nina Bellucci and Kathleen Kennedy in a vital display of movement and color. The title references both artists' love for music, how it permeates various aspects of their lives and most importantly, how it fuels a noticeable rhythm in paint application. Whether pulled quickly in rectilinear waveforms across the surface of the canvas or coaxed slowly in transparent pools of color that bleed into each other, the paint and its infinite potential are clearly top concerns for both artists. The work of Bellucci and Kennedy seen together suggests a sense of urgency for intentional looking and seeing in a world saturated with images.
