SooVAC will revisit the concept we explored in our 2004 exhibition, Draw, in Draw Too: A Drawing Show in Four Acts. This time around artists will explore how to express four meanings of the word draw by the act of drawing both intangible and concrete illustrations derived from these concepts: Draw as an art form, draw a breath, draw a gun and a draw in sports.

Each artist will contribute works that weave a narrative thread, which investigates the complex nature of etymology and thus the act of communication. The artists are guided only by their definitions of what it means to draw, allowing for a myriad of results. Some of the works utilize traditional methods of graphite on paper while others expand the boundaries to encapsulate imagery drawn on the computer and unexpected materials.
