Following exhibitions in Paris and Sydney, the international Drawing Collective’s first U.S. exhibition “Drawing Now” will be on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) at Maine College of Art (MECA) from January 17th– March 22nd. The Drawing Collective is comprised of 30 artists from eleven countries who all share the practice of abstract drawing. Its founder, Munira Naqui , a Portland-based artist, and Bruce Brown, Curator Emeritus Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) are co-curators of “Drawing Now.” Erin Hutton, Director of Exhibitions at ICA at MECA, is the organizer of the exhibition. Three of the artists hail from The Netherlands: Tineke Porck, Andre Geertse and Wilma Vissers.

“Descendants of Bauhaus, De Stijl, Réalities Nouvelles and Art Concret, their work represents a contemporary continuum of research in the formal purity of abstraction.” Bruce Brown, Curator Emeritus Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA)
