SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is pleased to announce the 8th ANNUAL MONSTER DRAWING RALLY, Southern Exposure’s annual live drawing event and fundraiser. The Monster Drawing Rally will feature over 130 artists drawing live at the Verdi Club. $5 suggested donation. For a full list of artists, please go to http://soex.org/event/156.html.
Demystifying a process that usually takes place in the privacy of the studio, spectators at the Monster Drawing Rally can observe artists in the act of creation in the public domain. In keeping with Southern Exposure’s mission to provide the public with an environment accessible to art and artists, the Monster Drawing Rally provides a fertile ground for extraordinary interaction.
Providing the basic necessities of the drawing practice—pencils, charcoal, pens, markers, ink, and paper—Southern Exposure creates the context while the artists create the content of the drawings. The evening will consist of four one-hour shifts with approximately 30 artists drawing simultaneously each hour. As the drawings are completed they will be hung on the walls and made available for purchase for only $60 each. The Monster Drawing Rally provides a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to purchase a work of art minutes after it’s completion. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for Southern Exposure’s Exhibitions and Artists in Education Programs.
SoEx is also thrilled to announce that DJ Frau Holly will be on hand to deliver all the music all night long.
The Monster Drawing Rally will take place at the Verdi Club, located at 2424 Mariposa Street.
Generous in-kind donations for the 8th Annual Monster Drawing Rally are provided by Anderson Valley Brewery, Firestone/Nectar Ales, Trumer Pils, Blick Art Material, Utrecht Art Supply and Pearl Art Supply.
