Stare Tactics

Where society tells us to look away, Chris Rush’s photorealistic Conté crayon drawings of children and adults with physical and mental disabilities encourage us to look – and we mean really look – as we register their strange and glowing beauty.

In Rush’s “Stare,” a ten-year retrospective, we’re drawn in by a familiar Mannerist quality, and then compelled even more by bright yellow sunglasses or a beach towel. The exhibit also includes Rush’s drawings and paintings on found paper and objects, including 17th century legal documents, love letters, and a Civil War-era grocery list.

Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Feb. 12. Continues through May 16, 2010
