For the most part the show is comprised of very exciting and accomplished work of a wide range of drawing's possibilities. And as the year as well as Fitzpatrick's series of shows is drawing to an end, something else will soon be over. After 10 years of operating two galleries simultaneously on High and Congress streets, Fitzpatrick will close the off-main-street location for economic and logistical reasons. I remain hopeful that Fitzpatrick will devise an additional outlet for her indomitable enthusiasm and engagement for some of the best artists around.
