SSH Gallery features drawings by Ron Linn though April 2
Linn writes in an excerpt from his artist statement: “A drawing is always of something being looked at, thought about, immersed in. Lately I have been drawing stones, trying to read the messages written in their surfaces as I trace their contours on paper. I like to think of drawing as a sort of sympathetic magic, in which the pencil becomes a stand-in for myself as it moves across the terrain of the paper. A line is a dot that went for a walk. A line is Ariadne’s thread leading the way into and out of the labyrinth, or Penelope’s shroud woven each day and unraveled each night. If we could follow that line, what would we find? A drawing is an image, but it is also a fact, a stretch of time fixed to a surface, the trace of the looker.”
The South Santiam Hall Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
