Underdonk is pleased to present Private Practice, a group exhibition of work by nineteen artists, each presenting a selection of their studio practice. Comprised of sketches, notes, objects of inspiration, shrines, postcards, and unseen drawings with completed works, this exhibition explores the line between private and public. Giving the artist permission to show what one would often keep hidden or as an idea not fully processed but for further fruition in another work, this show lays bare the unfolding thinking practice in the studio. The artist is a work in progress, perpetually searching, changing, and staying the same. We are gatherers, hoarders, and historians.
