An Artists' Reception

Led by Op Art pioneer Ed Mieczkowski, NewCelle was an artist group formed in 1998 with the purpose of “revitalizing drawing in the light of the new millennium.” Although it began as an experiment, the group continued to draw together for more than four years, producing work that had a powerful and lasting impact on the members. Preceded by two Mieczkowski-led artist collectives, NewCelle was unique in its process. Influenced by the Surrealists’ psychic automatism technique, the artists took turns drawing a single line at a time on the same surface. Each time the group met, they added a new work to the rotation until nine works were being created at once. In conjunction with its new exhibition of NewCelle collaborations, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve hosts an artist reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. today, and the exhibition remains on view through July 8. Admission is free. (Usmani)
