Day Pages is a look at process and exploration in the form of working drawings, notes, tools, and sketchbooks. It is a place of collecting and thinking and playing with words and images. These are things not made with an audience in mind but focused on connection to an impulse and the pursuit of the material manifestation of an idea.

The pages take many forms, from the studio ephemera of Lucille Paris, the informal sketches of Ben Shahn, to Russell Crotty’s large books documenting favorite sites of rock climbing and surfing. Pui Tiffany Chow allows us to see the abstraction of a figurative image in its progression and Lisa Anne Auerbach’s pages are preparatory drawings of personal libraries for her works in knitted tapestry
