“Making Their Mark” includes works by six regional artists who have mastered a full range of drawing materials, styles, and techniques. Barbara Hennig-Loomis of Chesapeake; Linda Carey, Brian Kreydatus, Elizabeth Mead, and Nicole M. Santiago, all from Williamsburg; and Robert Sites of Norfolk provide a full spectrum of drawing examples from portraits to landscapes. Ranging in size from small-scale to large, works include pastel, ink, charcoal, silverpoint, graphite, conté, and mixed media. The collection features drawings that are witty and exciting as well as graceful and contemplative.
Hennig-Loomis teaches at TCC and Sites at Norfolk State University. Carey, Kreydatus, Mead and Santiago teach at the College of William & Mary.
