Congratulations to all of the artists in the exhibition!

Drawn to Creating: A Survey of Contemporary Drawing
Opening reception April 22, 7 p.m.
April 22 – May 17, 2017
Drawing is often our first exploration of creativity. This can be seen in the artist in the studio, children exploring expression, or humanity discovering self. It is the most immediate act of creation and expression, the most in-depth act of observation, and the most direct form of imaging. Spurred by technological revolutions that have their foundations from its methods, drawing has become incredibly diverse, and as relevant and important as ever.
Drawn to Creating: A Survey of Contemporary Drawing is an exhibition seeking to show, as much as a single exhibition can, the depth of what is happening in the current discipline of drawing. Considering work from the most academic to the most experimental, and from the formal to the conceptual, it presents drawing as an independent and expanding discipline.
Artist-curator, Nick Reszetar, has chosen the 10 artists and their works for the exhibition, from his own research into, and love of, drawing. He will give a gallery talk at the opening reception to discuss the depth of the work.
