This exhibition series focuses on drawing as an expanded medium, seeking to identify and showcase works by contemporary artists who are both challenging and engaging the traditional definition of drawing. From sketches, to sculpture, installation, mark-making, and mechanical means, each artist explores the notion of drawing as an ever changing and evolving medium.
