The David Barnett Gallery Presents Masterstrokes: Three Centuries of Drawing. Throughout history, drawing has been regarded as the foundation for artistic practice and the very basis for the visual arts. drawing can be a kind of chameleon, morphing from linear to painterly. This exhibition will examine the exploratory nature of drawing- its emphasis on observation. problem-solving, and composition- and how it shows the artist's hand in a range of styles from realistic to abstract. Drawing, a crucial part of artistic tradition, has become a tool for aesthetic thought and investigation and a vital medium in its own right.
