Out of Joint – Small Drawings

by Karen Schiff

November 22, 2019 – February 23, 2020

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 12th, 6-8PM
Closing Reception/Artist Talk: Sunday, February 23rd, 5-7PM

These playing-card-sized drawings, made with graphite and watercolor pencil, twist and pull at the classic forms of the modernist grid. Space is revealed to be delightfully unpredictable and lumpy, no longer smoothly consistent or mathematically measurable. The exhibition title derives from a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet: the beleaguered title character laments, “The time is out of joint.” But the drawings add a touch of humor, as their forms persist in singing a bit “off-key”.

$5 general public / $3 DCAC members

Time runs out on four; washed up, middle-aged comedian’s Hollywood dreams when their Christian employer cancels their kids television show. Wanting to go out on their terms, they get “creative” with their Christmas show. No harm in that…right?
