Our 2017-18 season opens with a solo exhibition of works on paper by Mark Mahosky. In 'The Yellow Drawings,' Mahosky explores the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield as a site of memory and memorialization through black ink and charcoal drawings on brightly painted grounds. Mahosky’s long-term engagement with the Gettysburg battlefield reached its zenith in August of 2015, when he became a resident artist with the National Park Service, which administers the sprawling site. There he spent most of his time drawing the battlefield en plein air. The presentation of this body of work is timely, as the Civil War has re-entered the public consciousness due to recent events that challenge the racism long associated with the symbols of the Confederacy.
