Exhibition Opening

Drawing Attention II

Opening: Friday, June 3, 2011, 5 to 9pm.

A core group of artists draw together weekly and challenge themselves with the rigors of sketching the human figure from life.  It takes patience.  It takes guts.  What they share is a need “to get it right” regardless of their artistic discipline. They are painters, sculptors, photographers, miniaturists, and muralists. Their styles range from realism in water pastels or Conte crayon techniques to near-abstraction in pencil and charcoal.  What they produce reflects all the intensity and immediacy of a captured slice of being human.

The spontaneity found in gesture drawings carries over into their formal art.  Their compositions include not only figurative work, but landscape, still life, portrait and pure abstraction.  Come meet the artists, witness examples of their figure work and enjoy the complete range of their styles and imagery.  It deserves your attention!


Opening Reception (public invited) - Friday, June 3, 2011 from 5 to 9pm.

Exhibition: Through Saturday, July 2, 2011.

Hours: Saturdays: 12-5pm or by appointment.

Tom Robinson -- artist, curator, arts administrator, competition founder and judge, teacher, innovator -- has been a driving force in the Chicago art scene for over 30 years.  “I never tire of the ways different artists see and capture the same subject”, says Robinson.  “The real difference comes from how the artists direct their attention.”
