From painting to architecture, drawing is basic to the visual arts. While, in its broadest sense, drawing includes every use of the delineated line, the word drawing is commonly used to describe works in pen, pencil, crayon, chalk, charcoal and similar media in which form, rather than color, is emphasized. A drawing can be either a preparatory study or a finished work of art in its own right.

Man has been communicating by drawing since time immemorial—the hunter scratching a diagram in the dirt with a stick to show where he found game; the shaman using a piece of charred wood to make symbolic marks on a rock; the warrior marking his face with ochre before battle. The most ancient evidence of the production of art actually predates the generally accepted earliest dates for the appearance of modern humans. Cup marks and a meandering line were etched into a sandstone cave in India two or three hundred thousand years ago.

By the Upper Paleolithic period, man’s drawing had become quite sophisticated. The famous cave paintings in northern Spain and southwestern France, dating back some 35,000 years, include the use of perspective, shading, realistic animal forms, hand stencils, movement and various pigments.

“Marks, Scratches and Doodles” curated by Scott Canty, the Palos Verdes Art Center’s exhibitions director, is a collection of drawings by contemporary Southern California artists. Working in different mediums and styles, these artists demonstrate a variety of creative approaches to the depiction of their individual environments—the people they know and the places in which they live and work.

The Palos Verdes Art Center, a non-profit organization, has served southwestern Los Angeles County with visual arts exhibition, education and community outreach programming for more than 75 years.
