Opening Reception Intersecting Lines says
The San Diego Public Library is pleased to present "Intersecting Lines: The 11th Biannual Drawing Show." This exhibition showcases San Diego-based artists applying a broad range of concept, media and process to demonstrate the value of this quintessential image-making technique.

As human beings, we have put ideas into form since the Stone Age. Drawing helps to make our ideas tangible, from scribbles and doodles, to sketches and diagrams - drawing helps explain what words cannot. For studio artists, drawing is a fundamental skill, but the concepts and media they explore and employ are limitless. Anatomy lessons are testament to the prolificacy of an artist, while collaborative drawings can serve as artifacts of complex community investigations. From figurative work with pop culture references to political debates and built environment, these artists are creating thought-provoking, powerful works.

Curated by Kara West, the Library Arts and Culture Exhibition Manager, featured artists include Joyce Cutler-Shaw, Dominic Paul Miller, Todd Partridge, Regan Russell, and Barbara Sexton.

"Intersecting Lines" opens Saturday, September 24, 2016 and runs through November 27, 2016 in the Art Gallery on the 9th Floor of the San Diego Central Library. A reception is planned on opening day from 12 to 2 p.m. Both the reception and exhibition are open to the public and admission is free.

The exhibition is made possible by a collaboration between the San Diego Public Library and the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.
