The Associates Gallery at the Torpedo Factory Art Center is proud to present work of Kara Hammond and Drew Parris in an exhibit entitled: “The Hand Speaks.”
Beyond what each artist possesses in their innate mastery of the craft of drawing, these artists’ work exhibits an ability to take the simplest of materials – pencil, ink, and paper – to create singular instances of human presence, with a strong sense of beauty, wry humor, and emotional depth.
Recently juried into the Torpedo Factory, TAG newcomer Drew Parris is primarily self-taught in the medium of graphite drawing. His subjects often family and friends offering the viewer a unique emotional connection to his work. Kara Hammond will feature new ink wash drawings each a unique narrative vignette, reminiscent of a graphic novel.
