David Syre: Drawings from Greece

Greece is a land of dreams with stunning views, mesmerizing beaches, and sublime architecture. It was an inspirational dream for artist David Syre, too. During a recent trip through the islands of Greece, Syre documented his experiences through his art with his prolific and perceptive drawing practices. 

Drawings From Greece is an exhibition of David Syre’s drawings made during this recent trip to Greece. Syre’s drawings consistently show “what he sees.” They are a visual journal of Syre’s travels and take the viewer along on the journey. The artworks showcase the typical Greek Cycladic architecture: arches and vaults, blue domes, crossed spires in a stunning setting of Olympian high cliffs. Iconic windmills and local flora and fauna play a role as visual influences, as well. In this collection of drawings Syre uses new materials and, for the first time, consistently works not on black, but on white paper!

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
