Local artist Kiera O'Toole will be exhibiting at Art Studios Cooperative from March 11 to April 6. Her exhibition, entitled "Lines of Inquiry: Marking Time and Place" which is a collaboration with Dr Annemarie Murland, will also be showing at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery in July. "Working on the premise that drawing is a verb and a noun, this project queries, not only what drawing is, but also what it can be. The function and processes of contemporary drawing has shifted far beyond the preparatory sketch and scientific illustrations. As such, contemporary drawing as practice demands new and innovative methodologies that expand its history. The materiality and physical act of drawing, whether explored through the politics of sound or as an installation, require an engagement between artist and idea for new possibilities to emerge."
