I was fortunate to attend the preview of Seattle Art Museum’s fine exhibit ‘Modernism in the Pacific Northwest’ the other evening. Of the artists represented, the one whose paintings resonated most deeply with Daughter and I was Morris Graves (1910 – 2001). Grave’s recurring theme ‘Inner Eye’ resulted in a particularly compelling body of work.
‘Dove of the Inner Eye’ 1941 by Morris Graves
The Inner or Third Eye – though invisible itself – is thought to perceive unseen spiritual realms, and is the theme of this the 141st Drawing Challenge. All are invited to participate in the Challenge with any sort of creative response be it photography, writing, painting, or actually drawing.
If you want to join, leave a comment here saying you are in. The following weekend the 'drawings' are shown on the blogs of the participants and the host links to them all.
