Michelle Stuart

Ongoing, Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street
Beacon, New York

In 1972 Michelle Stuart began working on a group of large-scale paper scrolls that incorporated frottage
(a rubbing technique) with graphite to capture the uneven and unique topography of the earth’s surface. Stuart—who developed an interest in documenting the specificities of land formations while working as a topographical draftsman for the United States Army Corps of Engineers—has described her rubbing process
as “making something manifest that you couldn’t really see otherwise.”

Donna Mikkelsen is an ambidextrous artist from Brooklyn, NY. From a very early age, she trained herself to be ambidextrous. For over 25 years she has been exploring symmetrical drawing, experimenting with different materials, speeds, rhythms, directions, sequences and sizes. Her process organically developed into a drawing / movement meditation. Donna has developed AmbiArts workshops that explore symmetrical drawing as a means to develop self awareness, build teamwork and create community through individual and collaborative art making.
