More Drawings about Buildings and Food celebrates Western Exhibitions’ relationship with and fandom of artists from four progressive studios— Arts of Life from Chicago, LAND from Brooklyn, Visionaries + Voices [V+V] from Cincinnati, and Project Onward from Chicago — all non-for-profit studios that provide space, materials, mentorship, and exhibition opportunities to adult visual artists with disabilities.


More Drawings about Buildings and Food (the show title riffs on the art rock band Talking Heads’ second album) will feature drawings (and sculpture) about buildings (and cities and architecture) by Courttney Cooper, Kareem Davis, and Ricky Willis; drawings (and paintings) about food by Raquel Albarran, Kenya Hanley, and Cathrine Whited; exultations of rock stars and celebrities in multiple mediums by Bill Lilly, Michael Pellew (including Pellew’s near life-sized sculpture of David Byrne from the aforementioned Talking Heads), and David Holt; portraiture, still lifes and quirky narratives by Carlo Daleo, William Douglas, Elmer, Andrew Hostick, Trip Huggins, Byron Smith, and Mark Smith; and wildly varied approaches to abstraction in drawings and assemblages by Jenny Crowe, Garrol Gayden, Christianne Msall, Susan Pasowicz, and Hubert Posey.
