Eric Beltz - Recrafting History (Group Show)

Sampler in graphite by Eric Beltz. Wonderful. Eric's bio says he teaches the "lost art of drawing" at UCSB and his most recent work recreates the look of a cross-stitched samplers. I really like that he's not drawing the stitches themselves but pixel-like boxes of varying shades.

This work is part of an upcoming group show:

American Memory
