Mark Mahosky: The Yellow Drawings, 1986-2017

September 14, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

In The Yellow Drawings, Mark Mahosky explores the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield as a site of memory and memorialization through black ink and charcoal drawings on brightly painted grounds, using the palette of highway warning signs as if to grab our attention. Mahosky’s long-term engagement with the Gettysburg battlefield reached its zenith in August of 2015, when he became a resident artist with the National Park Service, which administers the sprawling site. There he spent most of his time drawing the battlefield en plein air. The presentation of this body of work is timely, as the Civil War has re-entered the public consciousness due to the unrest and violence surrounding Confederate monuments.
