Loyola University Maryland’s Julio Fine Arts Gallery will feature “Floating World," an exhibit of colored pencil drawings by Beverly Ress, from Thursday, Oct. 21 – Tuesday, Nov. 23. An artist talk and reception will be held on Thursday, Oct. 28, from 5 – 7 p.m.
Ress draws from life, and her work explores ways of incorporating ideas from science into representational drawing. Her elements are often based on structures found in physics and mathematics. Ress’ work has been included in Confronting Mortality with Art and Science at the Antwerp Zoo in Belgium, Art on Paper at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, N.C., and the 10th National Drawing Invitational at the Arkansas Arts Center.
In 2010 Ress received Corcoran/FGI’s Rising Star Award for ecologically engaged work, and in 2009 she was nominated for a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship.
Ress holds an MFA in sculpture from the Rinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
The Julio Art Fine Arts Gallery, located in the DeChiaro College Center on Loyola’s North Charles Street campus, is open from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Friday and from 1 – 4 p.m. on Sundays. It is closed on all University holidays. For more information on this event and other exhibits at the gallery, please contact Gallery Director Kay Hwang at email@example.com.
