That (*#@!) Milk Can
October 24 - January 9, 2003

The (*#@!) Can, by Chelsey Peterson

The (*#@!) Can

Flathead Valley Community College art students from Department Head John Rawlings' past and present drawing classes offer their views of a favorite subject in the tongue-in-cheek exhibit of That (*#@!) Milk Can. The ability to look afresh at everyday objects and circumstances is a hallmark of true artistry. 
This exhibit portrays one tried-and-true method of developing that talent by elevating the seemingly mundane through the extension of one's concentration. 
The foundational ability to draw, whether with draftsman like accuracy or spare calligraphic flourish, allows the artist to take flight in the two-dimensional arts.
