The Fogg has a couple of new shows which feature the talents of local artists. An exhibition of contemporary "drawings" by nine Boston artists is hanging in the Drawing Study and Balcony. The term drawing is being used to cover a variety of media--watercolor, acrylic and acrylic air-brush--on paper. The works, both abstract and realistic, are small and intimate in feeling and vary greatly in quality. Still, the show is an insight into some of the types of art being done today and an excellent reason to visit the Drawing Study, one of the Fogg's best-kept secrets.
Downstairs at the Fogg, on the first floor, the Print Room is displaying photographs by Boston artist Peter Jones and contemporary lithographs, silk-screens and offset prints--including Claes Oldenburg's satirical "Art and Technology."
