I saw a lot of art yesterday, but the show (mainly one person’s drawings) that just killed me, I happened upon them by sheer luck. On my way to finding Suyama Space in Belltown I passed by the James Crespinel Studio (no found website). I think they hold independently curated shows, thus the large span or art you can see on any given day.
It so happened I went through their doors in the last few hours of Lift, a show curated by Catherine Person. I fell immediately for a set of drawings by Teresa T. Schmidt, and just had to ask about them. As it turns out Schmidt heads up the drawing department at Kansas State University, and is a seasoned printmaker as well. With such beautiful integrity in her line work I wasn’t surprised by the Susan Rothenberg reference in her artist statement. I can’t help it I’m a die-hard lover of expression-isms.
