The power of drawing

21 February 2017 - 30 June 2017
The power of drawing

We all doodle, in meetings, while on the phone or when we are stuck on a question or assignment.   For artists this doodling or drawing is a critical part of the creative process.   Sketching and drawing are considered the primary medium through which artists develop their ideas and techniques.    


Unlike sculpture or oil painting, drawing is immediate and means that an artist can connect eye, hand and mind in an instant process which helps them generate ideas and the form that those ideas are going to take. This exhibition displays both complete and preparatory drawings by William Kentridge, Penny Siopis, Hillary Graham and Fred Page. 

From the Art Museum’s permanent collection.
