From Concept to Canvas

December 9, 2023 – June 2, 2024

Step into the fascinating world of artistic creation in From Concept to Canvas, an exhibition that peels back the layers of inspiration, innovation, and imagination behind a finished artwork.

Featuring over sixty artworks, sketches, and sculptural maquettes from the Woodson’s permanent collection, the works highlight the various stages of artistic development, offering a unique glimpse into the creative process. Explore the initial spark of inspiration, the experimentation with different techniques and materials, and the moments of frustration and breakthrough that artists experience along the way.

With artworks displayed next to their archival studies, discover how artists channel their observations into their work, continuously tweaking ideas as they move from sketch to canvas to arrive at a final composition. Join us in exploring the inner workings of the artistic mind and experience the magic of art’s evolution.
