In conjunction with Lindsey White's current solo exhibition, Matter of Fact, Eli Ridgway Gallery presents Comedy Drawing School, a one-night event that combines the artist's love of stand-up comedy with her ambitions in the field of life drawing. The first iteration of CDS took place last January at Will Brown, the experimental exhibition space White operates alongside Jordan Stein and David Kasprzak. One of their most popular events to date, CDS produces round after round of undeniably hilarious sketches.
Eli Ridgway Gallery and Will Brown team up with a cast of local laugh artists for this second installment of life drawing inspired by stand-up comedy. We'll provide the chairs, easels, paper, pencils, and alcohol. Comedians provide short sets and get drawn by the audience.
