Featuring numerous recent acquisitions, this exhibition presents selections from the Colby Museum’s holdings of contemporary works on paper. Many of the artists represented are new to the collection and have entered it through their accomplishments in printmaking. These include Tomma Abts, Glenn Ligon, Raymond Pettibon, Lee Bontecou, Amy Sillman, and John Baldessari. Drawings by Richard Serra, Daphne Cummings, Sharon Louden, and Elena del Rivero, among others, offer vibrant evidence of that medium’s continued relevance and centrality.
