Sam Ivie: Meticulous Surfaces Exhibit Reception Aug. 7


Fort Worth Community Arts Center is hosting a solo exhibit for the work of Sam Ivie. The exhibit features work in watercolor, oil and ink drawings created in a stippling technique. The exhibit runs from August 7th-29th, 2015. An opening reception for the exhibit is on Friday, August 7th, 6-9pm.

My work is a combination of invented imagery and various other visual references. The subject matter currently moves from figurative imagery to portraiture and some still life images of robot toys or cars. Although the subject matter shifts from one to the other, all three are related.

“Surface is one thing that connects all three forms of imagery. In both painting and drawing, I work in a meticulous manner which never fails to leave behind some evidence of pencil, pen or brush. This is only visible upon closer inspection, but subject matter and composition usually draw the viewer in.”
