Professor of Art Grant Drumheller currently has a solo exhibit at Prince Street Gallery in New York City. The show runs through June 15 and features new paintings produced over the past year. The paintings depict public spaces and the crowds that inhabit them. Whether along a river or a large plaza, the figures’ gestures and resulting spaces are pondered and invented through the process of the painting. Along with large-scale works are small paintings of figure groupings, such as two boys swimming or two women looking across the East River to Manhattan, that represent the more intimate “found” subjects that complement the larger scenes.
John Seed, Professor of Art and Art History at Mt. San Jacinto College, conducted an extensive interview with Professor Drumheller about his work. It appeared in the Huffington Post yesterday.
