Sherry Camhy’s silverpoint Innocence, currently on view in the ASL window, appears in Thea Burns’s The Luminous Trace, Drawing and Writing in Metalpoint“In her carefully rendered full-length portraits,” writes Burns, “Camhy has explored the soft, atmospheric, essentially painterly gradations of tone that metalpoint can produce even in large-scale images.”
