Nude Sketches at "Barely There"

Barely There

A Sketchbook show

Rapid, fluid wash drawings cover the walls of The Renaissance Art Gallery. This month’s show, “Barely There” features large energetic works by artist Linda Helgason. Linda is known for her expressive nudes and this show is no exception. Her unique use of charcoal and watercolor washes makes for engaging works of fine line and texture.

Rather than a few static framed portraits, this show has all the life and vitality of a life drawing class. You can almost see the rapid strokes, and shifting model and hear the turning pages as you look at excerpts from Linda’s figure drawing sketchbooks.

The Renaissance Art Gallery will host “Barely There” until June 30th.
