1st Annual International Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing

Manifest was founded in-part to stand for the importance of drawing as
a process, skill, and discipline, and as a continuing viable product
of the creative fine art and design fields. Since its inception the
organization has continued to incorporate drawing-based programming,
including education (Drawing Center), publications (INDA), and gallery
exhibits into the broad spectrum of its projects. The students and
professors who formed Manifest in 2004 knew that despite their
diverging career paths (architecture, art history, painting,
industrial design, photography, education) they were brought together
to some degree on account of their connection to drawing and their
mutually intense but multi-faceted pursuit of this fundamental

In honor of the original spirit of the founding ideals of Manifest,
the gallery has chosen in its 10th season to launch DRAWN as a new
annual exhibition. DRAWN will seek to survey and present in our
galleries the broad scope of drawing being made today.

DRAWN calls for artists to submit works of drawing in any media
relevant to the practice (including non-traditional approaches), any
style, and any genre (fine art, illustration, design, conceptual,
realism, etc.).

This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work
to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most
traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria
beyond excellent quality is that works must qualify as drawing,
including that which tests the boundaries of the discipline.

Submission deadline: March 3, 2014
