Drawing Exhibit Curated by BSU’s Scott Anderson

What is drawing?

This is the question posed by Ball State Art Professor, Scott Anderson, to fellow facutly members. Fifteen of them replied, and an art exhibit was born. Anderson has his own response, “I believe the most elegant and thorough answer to the question is:  “Drawing is the act of making marks; mark-making with many different purposes and outcomes. From traditional approaches and mediums to newer investigations, drawing remains the primary tributary to any art practice.”  Artists who produce drawings, paintings, pottery, sculpture, for the most part, all share the same starting point to their art:  the preliminary sketches.  They also take notes, via sketches, of things they see, ideas to work out, pieces and parts of the world before them.  “Drawing is still the most direct, unfiltered and honest means to record the world around you and to express yourself,” offers the curator.  Titled, “Drawing Practice,” the exhibit will open with a public reception on Thursday, April 4, 2013, in the Gordy main gallery from 5 to 8 PM. Scott will speak about the collected works and answer questions at 6 PM.

Continuing through April 30th, the exhibit may also be viewed during business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 to 5:30, Saturday, 9 to 3, or by appointment.
