"Everything Nothing Something" Art Exhibition
Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art
"What's Not in the World That Should Be?" Don Kottman's answer to this question, posed in one of the dozens of sketchbooks the eminent American artist has filled over the years, is a torrent of beguiling small abstractions, represented in part in the Nerman Museum's Kansas Focus Gallery.
Featuring roughly 20 recent drawings, this exhibit immerses viewers in a creative vortex of glorious layered colors and animated gestural strokes. They traverse the page in loops and spirals, undulating waves and pileups of slashing vertical and horizontal lines, many in an exploration of the idea of sediment, and the layering, stacking, settling and moving of particles the word implies.
The Nerman Museum is open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday 10:00-5:00; Wednesday and Thursday 10:00-8:00, and Sunday 12:00-5:00
