The exhibition was an exploration of drawings where initial sparks were quickly given form with pencil on scraps of paper, ballpoint pen on the handy napkin, or colored sticks and paper. On these one witnessed spontaneous creativity and moments of unguarded experimentation, periods of lucidity most often denied us with the final “masterpiece.” These drawings contain (and sustain) the disposition of the artists’ efforts, successes, failures, and eventual satisfaction before his moving on to the canvas. The exhibition aimed to rekindle interest in drawings, both as a skill important in the development of art and as primary source of excellent work and experimentation.
