Globe Drawings

Artist and amateur astronomer {his drawings of nighttime skies based upon his own astronomical observations.}. Russell Crotty works on paper- fiberglass spheres and large books. He covers them with detailed images evolving from a network of fine pen lines, making calligraphic notes on astronomy and horizon landscapes and ecology -- hang in the open gallery space.
