23rd Drawing Show: Drawing Connections Print

23rd drawing showCurated by James Hull

July 12 – September 22, 2013

Drawing Connections investigates the relationships between traditional and contemporary approaches to the act of drawing as both a singular and interdisciplinary medium, from the simple yet elegant shorthand of painters and sculptors to the elaborate brainstorming of collaborative event-based artists.

In embracing the traditional “work on paper” side of drawing, Drawing Connections explores the edgy, contemporary application of this approach and seeks the conceptual content and experimentation that this primary, flexible medium provides for today’s working artists.
