There's much to be said for editing, but sometimes one's first artistic instincts are the best. The current exhibit at City Lights Gallery, Sketch, shows examples of primitive drawings and renderings ranging from cartoon drawings, to silverpoint drawings to iPad sketches, and traces them through the creative process to their final products. On Sunday, illustrator Joel Spector will conduct a workshop called Drawing with Silverpoint in conjunction with the exhibit, just in case you get inspired.
City Lights Gallery, 37 Markle Court, Bridgeport. Through May. 30. Free. Drawing with Silverpoint is Sun., May 19, 1-4 p.m. $75-$95. (203) 334-7748. citylightsgallery.org.
