This exhibition invites viewers to take a closer look at drawings. It examines the range of media, techniques, subjects and styles that can be found in drawings from the 18th to the late 20th centuries. From representational to abstract, the selected images demonstrate the artists’ mastery in the use of materials such as graphite, charcoal, Conte crayon, pastel, ink and paint. This exhibition is presented
in collaboration with the Museum of Art, University of New Hampshire, where it will be shown Jan. 24 through April 8, 2009.
