Must See: Drawing on the Edge

At the the National Portrait Gallery in DC through  August 18, 2013 The works in Drawing on the Edge expand the narrow boundaries that once defined drawing. (from the website) "Probing the intersection between drawing and photography, painting, video, textual writing, and computer technology, they introduce a sense of appealing complexity. They incorporate collage, exaggerate scale, or experiment with such surfaces as frosted Mylar, handmade paper, or a computer screen. Despite the variety in size, style, and mood in these works, all six artists show a commitment to make direct, immediate, highly personal marks on paper. Each of them employs a painstaking technique; their meticulous, repetitive actions result in a contemplative, almost meditative, engagement with process that adds a psychological depth to their work.
