New York - The Sarah Morthland Gallery is pleased to announce
an exhibition of recent light drawings by Alison Rossiter. The
exhibition begins on Thursday, September 18 and continues through
Saturday, November 8, 2003. The public is invited to attend a
reception for the artist on Thursday, September 25, from 6-8 p.m.

Alison Rossiter's 20 x 24 light drawings are based on the portrayal
of horses throughout art history, from primitive cave drawings to
Eadweard Muybridge's photographic studies of motion. Executed with
a small light source in the darkroom on photosensitive paper, each
drawing is unique. Some of the drawings are simple, bold outlines of
horses in spirited form, while others are highly detailed, seeming to
reveal the underlying musculature of the beast and physical grace of
Alison Rossiter lives and works in New Jersey and New York. During
the photographer's extensive career, she has had solo and group
exhibitions throughout Canada and in New York and her work is
included in numerous collections including the Getty Museum,
The Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Canada.
Ms. Rossiter was selected to participate in the first site Santa Fe with
an installation of a series of photographs and photograms pertaining to
the atomic bomb. She has received favorable reviews in Art Issues,
Freize, and ArtNews magazines, among others.
