The most recent of gallery director Laura Montgomery's 'theme-related' art shows is currently on exhibit at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery.

Drawn to Conclusion features drawings of four Boston artists: Kyle Lindholm, William St. George, Kate Sullivan and Maddhu Huacuja, who also exhibited on the Chelsea campus last spring www.examiner.com/arts-in-boston/bhcc-chelsea-campus-artist-s-reception-f....


At the artists's reception Thursday night the gallery walls seemed to vibrate in gorgeous color and riveting black and white. Subject matter as divergent as mountain cities in Afghanistan and classic modes of public transportation drew the eye to examine everything more closely.


A series of graphite drawings by Kate Sullivan created quite a bit of conversation and comment, mostly of the 'I can't believe that's not a photograph' variety. Sullivan, who once worked as a transportation data consultant, has drawn trolleys and buses, streetcars and street scenes. Graphite detail of the peeling paint on the front of a steam locomotive is so authentic that it was easy to understand art goers surprise. Sullivan uses her own photographs and seeks for a 'completely realistic' representation.


Another wall shows horses, some in a gallop, others in full still frame of their stunning faces. Artist William St. George, a long time successful painter, gallery owner and lover of horses, for this series chose to return to charcoal drawing, to make full use of the 'power of black and white’. www.stgeorgegallery.com.


The exhibit runs through January 7, 2011. Don't miss it. See the college website for gallery hours. www.bhcc.mass.edu/artgallery
