Drawing is often considered as the quintessential point from which the development of an idea moves through to a larger or more complex work – regardless of whether they contain the genesis of a larger work or are complete in themselves, drawings offer both the maker and the viewer direct appeal as intimate first-hand encounters.
 
The process of drawing leads on to new difficulties to be conquered, to new subtleties of line, and fresh fascinations in the pursuit of distinction and style. The artists participating in this exhibition all have their own elemental take on the art of drawing.

As expected these artists have presented a remarkably diverse range of work, from the immediacy of life-drawing to detailed preparatory studies, they incorporate an equally diverse range of mediums from pencil, biro and pastel to collage and grids.

You are invited to engage with the closeness and accessibility offered by these artworks and to discover the rich possibilities of drawing.
