Drawing Expo started as an annual group exhibition curated by Gabriel Deerman in 2007. Its mandate is to present a diverse spectrum of artists from Canada and abroad working in the field of contemporary drawing. “Drawing Expo” is a celebration of the imagination and fantasy that flourishes within the transference of the artist’s idea to the drawn surface. New worlds are projected by this exciting medium. The artists involved challenge disciplinary borders and definitions with their varying approaches to the work. Using print media, collage, brush and ink or the pen; from doodles to intricately executed renderings, the question of “What is drawing?” is posed as an invitation to the viewer to ponder and enjoy.
After a brief hiatus, Drawing Expo is reemerging for its 4th exhibition. Drawing Expo’s Curator and founder, Gabriel Deerman is currently living and working in Doha, Qatar. Deerman will have work on display, in addition to taking the roll of satellite curatorial adviser. This year’s Drawing Expo will be coordinated and curated by Ehren Salazar and Nathan Jones.
