Drawing On, an exhibition of drawings by eight Maine artists, presents works drawn directly on the walls of the Lord Hall Gallery at the University of Maine. Working over the course of two weeks, the artists have created an environment of unique but temporary drawings that focus on the immediacy of the drawing process as well as the impermanent nature of artistic forms.
The artists in Drawing On include David Allen, Kathleen Florance, Susan Groce, Orson Horschler, Reese Inman, Nina Jerome, James Linehan, and Ed Nadeau.
The exhibition opening will be held on Friday, October 14 from 5:30-7 p.m. The public and university community are welcome to attend. For further viewing, the gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This exhibition is part of Where to Draw the Line: The Maine Drawing Project, a statewide visual arts initiative, developed by the Maine Curators Group, which represents a unique collaboration between Maine’s arts organizations. Museums and galleries across the state are offering exhibitions that focus on the process of drawing and how artists use it as a vehicle for creating diverse forms of visual expression.

Lord Hall Gallery is handicapped accessible. All events are free and open to the public.
