about the exhibition

Drawing is a spontaneous way to explore shapes, structures, and thoughts without having to worry about scale, the pull of gravity, whether a piece can stand up, or the material limitations that may dictate form. It is also a process that helps springboard ideas and can expose hidden concepts; it is a point of dialogue between the artist, the ideas they are exploring, and a precursor or animator to the physical making of an object. Craft artists have long used drawings as a means to design their work or investigate ideas, but viewers are seldom given the opportunity to view the personal explorations that support a finished piece.
