Works on Paper
This summer RJD Gallery in Bridgehampton, New York, will present an exhibition featuring works on paper, including charcoal drawings and limited-edition prints. “The ancient Egyptians were the first to use paper, papyrus, around 3700 B.C., and it became particularly famous for its artistic opportunities,” says gallery principal Richard J. Demato.

“RJD is fortunate to present diverse contemporary artworks on this essential medium, including Rachel Moseley’s limited-edition print collection. All are custom framed and display museum-quality and masterful use of archival ink and paper. There are only 10 editions of each, hand-signed and numbered, and exclusively offered at RJD, while they last,” Demato continues. “In addition, we now offer other unique artworks in this medium from our personal collection and by Tyler Vouros, Christina Pettersson, Jacques Moiroud and Jamie Wyeth.”

Andrea Kowch’s most recently completed painting, Steadfast, was also made into 10 limited editions, with half of them already sold and the others available during this exhibition.

Vouros grew up in the woods and has always felt a kinship with the natural world. For the past 10 years, his work has revolved around our connection to flora and fauna, with raptors being his primary muse. Much of his work is based on animals he’s seen in taxidermy collections, but in more recent years it is derived from live birds of prey he’s seen at On the Wing in Epping, New Hampshire, which builds awareness of raptors through rehabilitation, educational programs and falconry.
