College of Arts and Sciences Dean Ken Procter’s powdered charcoal on paper drawing, “Flash,” 2010, garnered regional attention during a recent exhibition in Alabama.

Procter’s drawing was one of 80 works selected from 1,400 entries for exhibition in The Red Clay Survey: 2012 Exhibition of Contemporary Southern Art, presented by Huntsville Museum of Art.

He creates his images from memory and imagination.

“The drawings are made entirely with powdered charcoal,” Procter said. “It is brushed, scraped, scratched, spattered and manipulated in various ways to create the landscapes.”

The 61 established and emerging artists’ works were selected through a comprehensive twofold process, including an initial state of jurying by image and a second stage of reviewing actual works. The artists represent 10 Southern states.

Procter is represented by Alan Avery Art Company in Atlanta.

“I stay quietly active as an artist — not much time for getting the work out to shows,” he said, “though there have been a couple of good shows featuring large bodies of work.”
