The Drawing Project is a unique arts programming organization connecting and growing community through the act of drawing.
Lynda Monick-Isenberg, Minneapolis College of Art & Design instructor and artist, and her former student, Shannon Brunette, also a teacher/artist, have launched a collaboration designed to form The Drawing Project, the realization of a vision both have nurtured for quite some time.
To assist in bringing this project to the awareness of the public, Homewood Studios gallery has invited Lynda and Shannon to curate a show of drawings, purely drawings, which celebrate and make obvious the importance of this often-overlooked genre in the art landscape.
About this (possibly ground-breaking) show, Lynda and Shannon write:
The Drawing Project’s Homewood Studios exhibition will present the work by master artists that embodies drawing as a mode of expression, an act of inquiry, or a lens into the unconscious - promoting a deeper respect for looking and thinking in everyday life. The exhibition is curated by The Drawing Project co-founders, Shannon Brunette and Lynda Monick-Isenberg, and will be accompanied by community programming addressing drawing as a human expressive activity.
The exploration and study of drawing is a fundamental practice, which informs and inspires across disciplines, professions and experience. The Drawing Project aims to collaborate, encourage and engage diverse local and global perspectives on contemporary drawing through projects like the Homewood Studios exhibition.
The Drawing Project would like to thank Homewood Studios for the opportunity to create and mount this exhibition along side complementary programming. Look for more details this spring!
