Sherry Camhy and Silverpoint Drawing

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.”
