Review: CityArts Magazine, March 2015

Devoid of Color

In 1930, Women Painters of Washington was launched to represent female painters from across the state and to mount regular exhibitions in Seattle and beyond. On March 5, 38 members of WPW present work that interprets the world through a palette devoid of color, exploring themes of light and dark, black and white. Donna Leavitt’s graphite drawing “Verulam” is a rendering of a lime tree in St. Albans, England, pieced together from many sheets of paper. “[This process] started in Macedonia where I served in the Peace Corps from 2006 to 2008 and had to make my drawings fit into a suitcase at the end of service,” Leavitt says. “Thus all of my big trees are done on multiple papers.” This tree is drawn from a series of photographs taken last September in St. Albans. “I was attracted to the way the light was working on the structure of the tree, and its elegant form,” Leavitt says.
