Friday, January 25, through Friday, March 8, "From 500 Sketches", the new work of Frank P. Phillips '97, will be on display in the Davis Gallery in Houghton House.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, January 25, from 7 - 9 p.m. in the Davis Gallery.
Frank P. Phillips '97 keeps small notepads in his pockets all the time; they are in every room of his home (change bowls, his desk, on top of the coffee table, in the bathroom); they are in his car cup holders, and, of course, in the studio. He has ideas for paintings all the time, whether during a faculty meeting, as a stop light, or in between classes. Sketching is the integral catalyst of his process; it allows him to make notes for and on immediate ideas, without cracking open a single jar of paint. Displaying 500 sketches represents "the beginning" and directly references to "the end" works.
Davis Gallery hours are Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. -5 p.m.; Saturday from 1 - 5 p.m.; the gallery is closed Sundays.
