Don Gummer – The Armature of Emotion: Drawings and Sculpture will be on view at the Walsh Art Gallery from March 4-June 11, 2016. An Opening Reception will take place at the Walsh Art Gallery on March 3 from 6-7:30 pm.

This exhibition presents drawings and sculptures by internationally renowned artist Don Gummer. Gummer’s richly layered, cerebrally composed drawings incorporate color, encaustic (an ancient technique in which pigment is suspended in wax) and collage. Reiterating many of the forms and motifs articulated in his reliefs and his free-standing sculptures, they function both as fluid heralds and intermediaries, and as autonomous creations. Informing Gummer’s drawings and sculpture alike is an innate and immutable sensibility for structure. In the disciplined architecture that undergirds the construction of forms, Gummer achieves a paradoxical synthesis of stasis and flow–an elastic armature capable at once of containing and expressing emotion. The Walsh Art Gallery is free and open to the public M-F from 11 am – 4 pm and select Saturdays. For more information, please visit our website at
