Second Fridays - From the Hand: Drawings

Join Director Karen T. Albert as she explores the importance of drawings in the creative process of artists such as Benny Andrews, Leonard Baskin, Jean Cocteau, Isaac Soyer and Benjamin West.

An artist may create works of art in a broad range of media, but an artistic idea often begins with a drawing. Drawings, whether created in pencil, ink, or pastel,exhibit a greater immediacy and cIoser connection to the artist. They can be studies for another work in a different medium, incomplete ideas, or finished images. This program highlights some of the remarkable drawings from the Hofstra University Museum of Art's collection, by artists such as Benny Andrews, Leonard Baskin, Jean Cocteau, Nancy Grossman, Philip Pearlstein, Diego Rivera, Norman Rockwell, George Romney, Isaac Soyer, Abraham Walkowitz, and Benjamin West.

While the Hofstra University Museum of Art galleries are temporarily closed, please join Director Karen T. Albert for Second Fridays - a virtual program that explores works of art from the Museum's diverse collection with an engaging thematic approach. Each session - held on the second Friday of the month - will be hosted live, through Zoom, at 3 p.m., followed by a Q&A.
