Finding Lines – a celebration of marks made and lines drawn.

15 July – 3 September 2017 Museum & Art Gallery

This exhibition featured a fascinating variety of drawings, from Henry Moore to David Shrigley, Maggi Hambling and Frank Auerbach alongside specific commissioned pieces by Stephen Carley, Tim Shore, Susan Kester, Liz Atkin, Steve Chapman and Nick Parker in the gallery and adjacent spaces.

This co-produced exhibition of drawings began with a sequence of creative acts by hundreds of participants, and builds on the notion of drawing as a tool to improve well-being. ‘Finding Lines’ moved from an invitation to notice and capture the lines around us into a provocation to ‘find your lines and make your mark’, to reclaim the joy of drawing.

“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” — From Paul Klee.


“Even at this late date, I go into my studio, and I think 'Is this going to be it? Is it the end?' You see, nearly everything terrorizes me. When an artist loses that terror, he's through.” — From Robert Rauschenberg
