The exhibit will feature a selection of Stubbs’ timeless works on paper. Early Drawings will run until October 26, 2013. Stubbs will attend the opening night reception. 

Eva Stubbs’ drawings penetrate the depth of the human condition. Her use of multiple mediums, from pen and ink to charcoal and oil stick showcase extraordinary range. Her powerful expressions show an honest balance between vulnerability and strength. The strong gestural lines of the figures in Stubbs' works are her testament to human endurance and her understanding of the human spirit. 

Known for her expressive clay work Stubbs’ considers her drawings to be a collection of studies in form and function. Stubbs describes her drawings as akin as playing scales for a pianist.  They allow her to rehearse. Many of Stubbs’ early representations became the catalyst for her most famous clay works. It is in the realization of Stubbs multi-dimensional work that a full appreciation of her drawings can begin.
