Bernard Meadows: Drawings from the Lazarof Collection
Saturday, Dec. 16-Sunday, April 8, 2001
Smart Museum, 5550 S. Greenwood Ave. 702-0200.
This exhibition will highlight over a dozen drawings and related sculptures by the modern British artist Bernard Meadows. Dating from the 1960s and 70s, these works will demonstrate the important thematic dialogue in the artists oeuvre between his drawn studies and finished bronzes. Although largely abstract, the imagery will focus on notions of organic growth and maternal protection, resulting from the sculptors ongoing investigation of cycles of life and death in the natural worlds of plants and animals that has been an artistic preoccupation of Meadows for more than four decades.
