gearing up for fall

After a busy spring in which we were rented for 6 consecutive weeks, we're gearing up for the fall. We already have 4 weeks tentatively booked (3 by SCAD students and 1 by a local group that does figure drawing), so we encourage students and other artists to get in touch soon.

Tuesday evening life drawing sessions continue through the summer. 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., $15 to draw. We've had a great mix so far of male and female models. Artists need to bring their own supplies, although we have a few chair and may have an extra easel or two. Please email billdawers@comcast.net for more information.

Tuesday Evening Life Drawing Sessions to resume

After two weeks off, we are set to resume Tuesday evening life drawing sessions at blankspace at 112 East 40th St. on Tuesday, March 24 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. On that night, we'll have an experienced male model, followed by a long pose with an experienced female model on 3/31, an extrememly dynamic male model on 4/7, and another male model on 4/14. We'll try to round out the month of April with female models.

Our first 6 weeks went VERY well, although we could use another couple of regular attendees to ensure our continued viability. After a slight adjustment in pricing terms, I'm allowing people to pay as they go, $15/night, but up-front payments would be welcome. Since we're paying models $20/hour, I need to average four paying attendees per evening to hit the break-even point.

So please spread the word to anyone who might be interested. Contact me via email with questions.

photos of our inaugural show








a new show

Our first weekly rental is to members of a woodblock printing class at SCAD, which will have an opening on Friday, Nov. 7 from 7 to 10 p.m. for their show process13 (that's to the 13th power). This coincides with Starland's First Friday (check out www.desotorow.org), so it should be a good night in the neighborhood.
