Wall Eye Gallery will host Drawn and Quartered Part III Draw-Off on May 6 & 7!
Friday, May 6th, 6:00p-10:00p - Opening Reception of an exhibition of art by participating artists.
Saturday, May 7th, 6:00p-10:00p - The Competition begins at 7:00p.
Figure drawing as a spectator sport? Three years in a row? Yes!!! Four established figure and drawing groups; The Murray Hill Drawing Group, Dr. Sketchy Cleveland, Pretentious Tremont Artists of the Literary Care, and N.O.I.S. (The Northern Ohio Illustrators Society,) will meet up and draw against time and each other for the amusement of an engaged audience. Think wide world of wrestling meets art school meets cabaret!
The teams of artists will compete against each other during timed drawing sessions, trying to capture the magic of an honest drawing. Costumed models and dancers, MorrisonDance, will be drawn live by the competing artists and teams vying for praise and prizes. The disciplines will range from quick gestures to a 90-minute portrait (run concurrently.)
Professional Artists and the audience will vote on the best individual and team drawings. The audience will have a chance to draw as well. Drinks, refreshments, music, and drawing materials for the inspired guests will be provided!
Finished artwork will be available for purchase during and after the events.
