Go to BALLARD ART WALK on Saturday, September 8th and stop by BALLARD WORKS for an opening of drawings by me and eight of my friends. Stop by and say hello, enjoy our collection of mark-making, and let us know how you like it.
You will see a hallway of our gesture drawings wallpapering the entrance (a delirium of marks!), as well as longer studied works. All our drawings are made from life, all drawn simultaneously without comment or critique. We simply love to draw. We believe in the process of making more and more drawings--and the collective energy and momentum gained by our dedicated focus as we stand side by side flinging charcoal, ink wash and soft pastel!
About the show:
These eight friends have gathered at my studio to draw the model for a good nine years. We’re a serious bunch behind the easel and pretty goofy one afterward sharing drinks and conversation. The support of our mark-making bond gives us extra autonomy to evolve our individual visions. Our marks are different yet our aim is the same: to always draw sincerely from our heart, mind, body, and soul. This show is a testament to Making Meaningful Marks--Nine times over!
Patty Klamser, Sandra Kahler, Linda Kokanovich, Jason Bourguignon, Leslie Newman, Matt Luxon, Lois Lord, Matt Delcomyn, and me!
Opening Reception is September 8th (Saturday) from 6-9 PM. Otherwise, open by appointment for the month.
