Sag Harbor’s artist-in-residence April Gornik travels to New York City Thursday, May 29, for a reading and book signing of her latest book, “April Gornik: Drawings.”
Published by FigureGround Press and distributed by ARTBOOK D.A.P. the book celebrates Ms. Gornik’s charcoal drawings done since 1984.
“Lush and wide-ranging in scope and subject, these landscapes call out the wild and the cultivated, from the desert to the forest to the sea, and show both the progress and consistency in her evocative approach to drawing,” according to synopsis of the book.
“April Gornik: Drawings” includes essays by Steve Martin and Archie Rand, as well as an interview with Lawrence Weschler and a downloadable composition for piano and cello by Bruce Wolosoff.
Ms. Gornik’s book signing is Thursday, May 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Danese/Corey Gallery, 511 West 22nd Street in New York City. A solo show by the artist is running at the gallery until Saturday, May 31.
