Works of the Life Drawing Group come to BAC

Works of the Life Drawing Group, “Drawn to Life” is coming to Brookings Arts Council

The Brookings Arts Council will be exhibiting the works of a varied group of artists, the Lifers Drawing Group, in its Main Gallery from October 24 through November 16, 2018. This diverse body of work will showcase the many talented members of this varied group.

Lifers is an informal and diverse group of artists who have been meeting weekly for the past fourteen years. The participants are beginners through accomplished artists – students to retirees. Some have art degrees and some do not. All are interested in depicting or capturing the human form through the study of life models – the study of the human body nude - bone structure, muscles and outer skin. This is important for an artist in depicting a clothed figure.

Participating artists use a variety of media to capture the human form. Watercolors, pastels, color pencils, charcoal, conte crayons, oils and clay are a few of the art materials used. The two hour sessions are not only a time for creating art, they are also a time of sharing and learning with people who have the same interest.

The Brookings Arts Council invites you to an artist’s reception which will take place October 25th from 4:30-6:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served, with artists sharing about their pieces, to begin around 5:00 pm.

The exhibit is open to the public October 24th through November 16, ––2018. There is no admission charge. The Brookings Arts Council is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9AM-12pm. For more information, contact 605-692-4177 or email artscouncil@brookings.net
