Yes, they’re all artists. But what else do Henri Matisse, Jean Dubuffet, and Käthe Kollwitz have in common? What about such local luminaries as Leslie Barlow, Harriet Bart, Frank Big Bear, Jonathon Thunder, Jim Denomie, and John Schuerman? Drawing. Whether as a way of exploring a project’s inception or as an aesthetic end in itself, drawing is one of the most primal of artistic expressions. In this exhibition, featuring work by nearly 100 artists, the variety of ways in which artists’ past and present deploy the act of drawing receives attention—with results as astounding as they are diverse in technique and subject matter.
