The Whitty Gallery
Beyond the Lines
The works of Stacy Topjian Searle and Carmen Verdi
Show Dates: Postponed until Fall 2020
An exhibition of artwork by two Nashua area artists, Stacy Topjian Searle and Carmen Verdi.
Searle is an award-winning artist whose exquisite pen-and-ink line drawings feature intricate landscapes and detailed natural subjects. Searle began her art education by taking workshops at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and later earned a BA in Art from the University of Lowell, Lowell, Massachusetts, where she focused on Illustration.
Searl’s black-and-white renderings of intricate tree bark, mushrooms, and other subjects aims to reflect nature’s beauty in its finest detail. Her work is shown regionally and is held in many private collections.
While Searle’s artwork focuses on nature, Carmen Verdi’s work is about the human. Verdi turns his sharp, observant eye to the hustle of city streets, the press of urban architecture, and the contemporary figure in motion. From his largest works in pencil, to his smallest, Verdi works with thousands of lines, he says, “to tell a story and create characters that my viewers can relate to.”
“Drawing is a fundamental skill in art, and it will be inspiring for students and the public to see these large scale pieces,” says Wild Salamander owner Charlie Morgan. “It’s impressive to see what can be achieved with just black ink and white paper. Wild Salamander is proud to feature two local emerging artists who have such incredible drawing skills.”
