Architectural Drawing Exhibit Opens Oct. 1

Sept. 30, 1998

An exhibit featuring the architectural drawings and paintings of artist Dick Davison will open Thursday at the University Art Gallery in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center on the Baylor University campus. The exhibit will run through Oct. 28.

The exhibit will include 21 of Davison's works with a majority rendered in mixed-media on paper. Additionally, several of the show's pieces are working studies from book pages that Davison is writing on architectural drawing. Davison currently serves as professor of architectural drawing at Texas A&M University.

"This is a remarkable exhibition for students because it addresses form, perspective, light and shadow," said Paul McCoy, associate professor of art and director of the University Art Gallery. "These are very expressive drawings and highly architectural.

"However, this exhibit transcends the specific discipline of architectural drawing," McCoy added. "Viewers will not be confronted with confusing imagery, although Davison's pieces are quite dramatic. This will be a thoroughly rewarding exhibit."

The University Art Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and during theater performances. There is no admission charge. For more information, call the department of art at 710-1867.
