Images from the opening

The current show at Myopic Books, Memory:Drawings, is a selection of Leah Grear's recent drawings inspired by nature. Drawn from memory, they record a semi-abstract image of the natural world and explore relationships beyond what can be seen, memories of feelings and things in their spaces. Presented are mostly black and white drawings using charcoal and horse's hair to create stark linear compositions.

Leah Grear is a native of Providence, a 1988 graduate of the Printmaking and Painting program at The Rhode Island School of Design and is currently teaching Drawing and Printmaking at The Wheeler School in Providence. She is one of the original creators behind HopArts, a yearly community event in Hope Valley connecting local artists to their community through an open studio trail.
