FIFTY YEARS OF ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS

The School of Architecture presents Fifty Years of Architectural Drawings, featuring the work of SARC alumnus Carlton Sturges Abbott. 

After graduating from the University of Virginia School of Architecture in 1963, Carlton Abbott embarked on his professional journey as an architect and artist. This exhibition is a collection of drawings created during his career which has spanned over fifty years. The drawings depict a range of subjects from housing to large urban projects. Pencil, ink, and pastel on paper or illustration board, are the primary materials used. Significant in the exhibit is a series of ink drawings of the buildings along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Carlton is the son of Stanley Abbott, FASLA, recognized as the primary designer of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The exhibit will be on display in the Elmaleh Gallery through April 29, 2017.
