From September 4 - 28, the Wilson Galleries at Anderson University opens the 2012-13 season with two exhibits, The Drawings of Kathy A. Moore and the Best of Indiana Glass: 2012 Indiana Glass Artists Exhibition. All shows are free, handicap accessible and open to the public.

In this solo exhibition of observation based Conte crayon and gesso drawings, layers of visible underlying marks indicate the artist’s shifting perspective. Kathy A. Moore states that she “aspires to convey within her still lifes a subtle quality of mystique within a luminous environment.” Moore has exhibited nationally with her works selected into national juried competitions including the First Street Gallery, the Bowery Gallery, and The Prince Street Gallery all in NYC.
