Exhibit: Sculpture and Drawing 2008

Perhaps it's just my fading memory,
but I really can't remember a P&C
as exciting as this one.
Perhaps that's because Rich Morrow
has finally exhibited his
monumental opus magnus
which towered over his
small studio in the basement
for so many years.
There was some drama
over whether it would be cast
or destroyed when he was moving out
of that studio
And I have a hunch
that interest in the statue
might even out live
interest in the famous ball player
"Cassie at the Movies"
The other reason for so much
excitement over this show
was the quality of the figure drawing.
As Phil Renaud actually consented to show
drawings made in the previous year,
rather than work done back in the fifties.
And Phil is not the only
remarkable draftsman at the academy
If you visit a national figure-drawing website,
you'll see just how rare these qualities are
in younger generations. of artists.
