Exhibition highlights North Carolina artists who create hand-drawn works in a variety of graphic mediums

The North Carolina Museum of Art presents Line, Touch, Trace, an exhibition of 30 hand-drawn works. Organized by Greenhill in Greensboro, N.C., the exhibition highlights 13 North Carolina artists who use graphite, ballpoint pen, conté crayon, ink, or charcoal to explore drawing in its relationship to thought processes. In Line, Touch, Trace, artists may work with line to precisely render contours or as calligraphy on the drawing’s surface; apply touch to build tonal values or erase edges; and use traced marks to suggest elements of an imagined topography. The artists use these techniques in works to communicate mental states, project invented worlds, or portray moments of contemplation. “We are thrilled to work with Greenhill—a fantastic North Carolina art institution—to feature local artists in Line, Touch, Trace,” says Jennifer Dasal, associate curator for contemporary art
