The Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota is displaying the Beginning of Everything: An Exhibition of Drawings, which surveys a broad range of approaches to drawing and includes works from a wide variety of geographies, time periods, and esthetic perspectives.

Drawing is, in many ways, the most versatile of all artistic mediums. It can serve as the beginning of an idea, the beginning of a more ambitious project, or the beginning of a completed artwork unto itself. Because drawing is so elemental, so direct, such a primary means of expression, it is cherished by artists and audiences for its immediate and intimate access to the possibilities of creative expression.
