“Reticent Shootist” on display through Nov. 14

John Drabanski, a student in Patricia Pearce’s Advanced Projects class, has his piece “Reticent Shootist” on display in the case to the right of the entrance of the Visual Arts Gallery. It will be exhibited through Nov. 14. The work includes 18 original wood engravings. He writes in his artist statement, “During the 1800s the handgun became the weapon of choice.¬† The Reticent Shootist is a short story in wood engravings¬† where the internal struggle of living the Code of the West clashes with the independent spirit.”
