David Hellams: Scenes from No Place: Drawings from 2008-2012

PaperWorkers Local is pleased to present an exhibition of drawings by Nashville-based artist David Hellams. 

Opening Reception: Friday, May 15 from 5:30-8:30PM

About this body of work, Hellams writes:

These pencil drawings were completed between 2008 and 2012. Here, humor and fantasy speak through a medium that trades in precision and restraint. Each drawing pictures one or two figures, and one or more props, which interact to suggest a dramatic scene. The lack of backgrounds in these works is both an aesthetic, and a narrative, choice, as the void calls viewers to imagine possible contexts for the scene. These athletes, magicians, and wild animals are players in a story we can only imagine.

Hellams' work can be viewed here:

Opening Reception: Friday, May 15 from 5:30-8:30PM

Closing Reception: Wednesday, July 8 from 5:30-8:30PM
