At big shows like this it’s fun to pick a personal favorite, and here’s mine for that day. It’s a work on paper by Marsha Donahue that uses a technique that I haven’t seen for more years than I care to count. “Katahdin from Wilderness Camps” uses black and white charcoal, with the black holding the shadows, the white creating the highlights, and the mid-range tones supplied by the brown paper it’s drawn on. It’s a modest work with gusto and charm.
