Oakville Galleries is pleased to announce the opening of our summer exhibition Out of Line, a group exhibition surveying recent works by more than 30 Canadian artists working in the expanded field of drawing.

Please join Oakville Galleries to celebrate the exhibition opening on Sunday 21 June from 2:30 pm–3:30 pm at Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square, followed by a reception at Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens from 3:30 pm–5:00 pm. This event is generously sponsored by Trafalgar Brewing Company and Whole Foods Market, Oakville.

Having long since shed its status as a marginal or preparatory practice, the medium of drawing has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent decades. Now seen widely as a vital art form in its own right, drawing offers countless artists the means to document their worlds, describe their imaginations and detail the abstract.

Out of Line brings together recent works by more than thirty contemporary artists from across Canada. Encompassing a broad array of styles and methods—from figurative works on paper to abstract sculptural pieces—the artworks assembled in the exhibition assess the impressively diverse and ambitious ways in which drawing practices are taking shape at the present moment across the country. With approaches both intimate and grand, traditional and novel, political and autobiographical, these works demonstrate drawing’s remarkable capacity to depict contemporary life.

Admission by donation.
