Contemporary artwork has spun outwards into myriad forms, employing performative, sculptural, and/or technological media to create varied forms and styles. Draw examines the medium of drawing only, the most basic, arguably the first learned medium, and finds an equally variant array of forms, styles, and techniques. As such we find, rather than an expansive spinning outward made possible by experimentation with different media combinations, within one isolated field there is proof of an equally elaborate blossoming from within.
Draw features the work of more than seventy artists (our largest show to date). There is no thematic or conceptual premise for this show; the intent is to exhibit the broad range of current drawing works from a large pool of artists. Of the seventy participating artists, the majority reside in MN, with others coming from several states on the East Coast, CA, and surrounding Midwestern states. Works range from naïve line drawings, to detailed realism, from graphic prints to painterly styles.
