Drawing – Experimentation & Expression
5 – 20 May, St Endellion Hall
(Open at weekends only, from 11.30am to 4.30pm)
Drawing has always taken a central place in the work of visual artists. Whether on large sheets of paper pinned to the wall or in the intimacy of a pocket-sized sketchbook, drawing is what painters, printmakers, potters and sculptors use to record observations, explore compositions, investigate themes and try out approaches. It is intriguing to follow the artist’s discoveries and experiments, but drawings are also an expression in their own right. In recent years there is renewed recognition of the impact of drawing and growing interest from collectors for tonal works.
This new exhibition shows a variety of approaches to drawing from artists including Jackie Henderson, Max William Burrows, Paul Jackson and Peter Ursem.
