For Drawing Sake
|Camera and editing by Jim Downer|
The exhibition features works by Harold T. Coogan, Jim Downer, Kathleen Farrell, Joe Hendrick, Peter Monacelli, and Jason Smith. These artists are all affiliated with the Monroe Community College (MCC) Department of Art. Each of them primarily works in traditional or non-traditional drawing media and keep daily sketchbooks.
A variety of approaches to drawing are explored in this exhibition as each artist claims a gallery wall for themselves displaying framed and unframed works, small sketches and napkin drawings. In addition to this there will be tables of sketchbooks on hand for visitors to peruse.
An artist talk is scheduled for September 27th at 6pm followed by a Drawing Club meetings. These free form events are meant for the production and discussion of the process and purpose of drawing. Exhibiting artists will be present creating new works and will be available for conversation with participants.
Works created in these workshops will be displayed in the gallery on the “Evolving Wall.” Participants are asked to bring their own materials, snacks will be provided. All events are free and open to the public.
