By the end of the Second World War, Pablo Picasso had reached what he called “the moment... when the movement of my thought interests me more than the thought itself.” This new interest in “movement”—the successive permutations of an artistic statement—found its most remarkable expression in Picasso’s practice as a printmaker. ...
One of Degas’s great late works, Russian Dancers (circa 1899), is presently on loan to the Getty.

"Sketchbook West Challenge"
Las Laguna Gallery
Exhibition Date: April 6 - 29, 2017
The process for this call for art is designed to explore the many ways artists create. Many artists use Sketchbooks to formulate ideas and to practice their craft. Often times clients never get to see just how much work goes into a painting or drawing or piece of art. Artists purchase a Sketchbook.
All Artists who create and return a Sketchbook will be included in this exhibition.
Artists return the Sketchbook by February 15, 2017.
All Sketchbooks will become part of an exhibition and library where visitors to the gallery can look thru Sketchbooks to discover the art process.
Artists who complete a larger work of art where the Sketchbook was a starting point or catalyst for the larger piece can send in images of the larger piece and it will be considered to jury. The gallery will select up to 12 larger pieces to show as well. At the end of the show the Sketchbooks will be sent back to the artists.
