"Drawings have for centuries offered viewers the most immediate and intimate glimpse of an artist’s perception and sensitivity. From the great outlines of Renaissance masters to the more intimate sketches of the English Romantics, drawings have exerted a great appeal to collectors and art historians. Since the early 20th century, artists have made the argument that that drawings can posses inherent qualities that make them a major art form in their own right. By the 1930’s, artist were challenging ideas of line and space through the use of unconventional media, energizing the power of drawing itself.
This intimate yet forceful exhibition presents an eclectic group of artists who have abandoned (or intensified) pen and pencil to create powerful expressions through line. On view will be works from the 1950’s to the present."*
