CONSTRUCTED VISIONS, DRAWINGS BY RONALD BLOORE

Carleton University Art Gallery, Jan. 15 -April 13, 2008

A Selection from the Collection


Constructed Visions features a selection of the more than 100 Bloore drawings in CUAG's collection. Bloore has made stylistically distinct drawings at specific points throughout his career. These drawings rarely served as studies for his paintings; they are independent and masterful works of art by one of Canada's most acclaimed abstractionists.
- Sandra Dyck, Curator
