“Collaboration: a Different View”
Collaborative Drawings as well as individual works by Bob McKim, Debbie Simpson, David Tanza, Michael Bashista, Francis Padilla, Maggie Yee and others ( Maggie’s Mens Group)
Michaelangelo Gallery presents a very different exhibit for the month of April. Maggie’s Mens Group, a local life drawing group, has been working with a unique creative approach called collaborative drawing. For each pose with a model, the team of artists each starts a drawing. After an interval, each artist moves on to their neighbors work and adds their viewpoint to that piece. This continues until all members have had input into each of the series of completed drawings. The drawings themselves become their own aesthetic experience, evolving as they uniquely inspire each participant’s input. The Gallery will be showing several of these drawing series as well as an individual piece of each artist’s original art. Come see if you can discover how their individual style influenced the collaborative pieces.
First Friday Reception which opens this month-long show is April 6, 2018, 5:30pm to 8:30pm.
You will have a second opportunity to meet the artists at our “Artist Talk” reception which will be at the gallery on April 21, 2018 from 3PM to 5PM. They will explain what they have enjoyed and stressed over working collaboratively. You also will be able to either observe or participate in drawing in a collaborative style from a live model to experience this creative process.
The show will be open every weekend throughout the month of April and closes on Sunday April 1st.
Michaelangelo Gallery is open First Friday 5:30 to 8:30 as well as every Saturday and Sunday, 12:00 noon – 5:00PM or by appointment. Call 831 566-3864 to arrange a private showing if you would like to visit outside these hours.
