Modern Arts Midtown’s next two-month exhibit in September and October will include eight artists who, though varied in subject and medium, have a similar shared aesthetic. Defiant Line, a drawing driven exhibition,illustrates a group that defies “traditional means in reaching their destination…to evoke abstraction in energetic line and color.”

Utilizing drawing, painting and steel, this unique group of “mark makers” features Teresa Schmidt, Catherine Ferguson, Michael Tegland, David McLeod, Jean Gaudaire-Thor, Joe Ruffo, Thomas Jewell-Vitale, Littleton Al and Gordon Powell.
