Whether intended as preparation for other work or simple musing, these diverse works illuminate the creative process.

Curated by Jamie Adams and Katharine Kuharic, the exhibition reveals work by Jamie Adams, Bo Bartlett, Roland Becerra, Harvey Citron, Will Cotton, Vincent Desiderio, Peter Drake, Ella Gant, Julie Heffernan, Catherine Howe, John Jacobsmeyer, Kurt Kauper, Tom Knechtel, Katharine Kuharic, Edward Schmidt, Mira Schor, Wade Schuman, John Sonsini , Robert Taplin, Caleb Weintraub.
