January 1 – 31, 2019 – Travel Drawings

We have all been traveling: through our lives, through the Internet, through time itself, and through the very cosmos we occupy. It was during another rapid holiday season of transition when we at Sacrosanct Gallery made the push to assemble travel related drawings, illustrations, sketches, and journal works throughout America for our initial January 2019 art exhibition. Many artists responded to the call, however in a growing age of interconnected globalization and mobility, many were not located in the United States.

Four artists quickly emerged, not only in the intrique of their unique visual voices, but in their divergent drawing practices and productions. Cosima Aryee from Illinois; Robert Eustace from Pennsylvania; Jennifer Lawson from Maine; and Matt Queen from Washington State are our featured talent this month. We know you will enjoy their work as shown here in addition to the work on their respective websites and Instagram accounts.

Sacrosanct Gallery : Drawings is dedicated to encouraging and exhibiting new discoveries in mark making. At Sacrosanct, we develop relationships between art collectors, artists, and art enthusiasts with a head towards classicism and a heart for the contemporary, living artist. We encourage you to view our future exhibits schedule and to connect with us for further details on the work featured below and many more in our networks. Happy New Year to each of you, may 2019 find you always with aat least one writing implement in hand.

Eustace1-Tree 14

Robert Eustace, Tree of Souls No. 14, sainteustacefineart.com, Pennsylvania. Robert joins Sacrosanct Gallery again in sharing his drawings of trees. One sees intricate ethereal forms emerging from an almost automatic drawing style of loosely interconnected networks. Eustace specializes in contemporary sacred art and extensively exhibits and promotes his work in that field. These drawings represent a special insight to foundational and observational sketching often necessary for the generation of more complex and full-range accomplishments (often manifested in other media).
