Allied Arts invites you to an exhibition of drawings titled “Forest Tree Bird” by artist Ken Procter. An opening reception honoring the artist is scheduled for 1:00-3:00 pm on Sunday, August 16 at the John Marlor Arts Center, 201 North Wayne Street, Milledgeville. The public is invited to attend.
“Forest Tree Bird” will include landscape drawings using brushed powdered charcoal on paper. According to Procter, “Landscape is a wonderfully malleable subject—natural forms can bend and shape to fit my vision. Powdered charcoal enables my process of composition. Until the powder is fixed, I can brush it around. I can create a form, adjust it, nudge it a bit to the side, or sweep it up and start fresh. Nature’s shapes are patterned, but also exuberantly chaotic. I can splash powder across the sheet, or corral it within defined borders. I can scratch and scrape, dab, blot and blow. Drawing is my first love. Powdered charcoal enables the ecology of creation.”
