Draw-a-thon & Performance Art at The Figure Revealed: Artists & Muse Exhibit Opening

Friday, January 26, 5pm-8pm is the opening reception of The Figure Revealed: Artists and Muse exhibit of figurative works. At the reception, the public is invited to experience drawing the semi-clothed figure at a “Draw-a-thon,” where performer/models will dance into poses. At the opening reception “Draw-a-thon,” performance artist/model Pash Galbavy and guest model Mark Stevens will offer 5 minute, “quick gesture” poses that attendees will be invited to draw. The models will dance into poses that will be based on their work together as performance artists and contact improvisational dancers. Participants will be provided with paper and pencils or they may bring their own drawing supplies. Attendees are welcome to draw or to watch. Another opportunity to see the model/performance artists contact dance into poses will be on February 2, from 5-8pm, during the First Friday closing reception when some of the exhibiting artists, including Jim Joseph-Menzel, Charles DeLay, Patty Miller, and Greg Evans, will offer live drawing demonstrations. At both events, there will be a “drawing” for a voucher for free admittance to a Monday life drawing group. Free food and wine will be served. The Figure Revealed: Artists and Muse exhibit will be open daily from 10am-5pm from January 27 through February 5. It features a collection of art, started in Sedona Art Center’s Monday life drawing sessions over the past four years by 15 regularly attending artists. The show highlights a vast array of styles, expressions, imaginative responses, and interpretations of the human form, which have been created by artists with various backgrounds and skill levels. Come treat yourself and participate in the wonder of the creative experience during the Draw-a-thon, Friday, January 25, 5:0pm – 8:00pm at The Figure Revealed exhibit at The Art Barn Theatre Gallery at the Sedona Art Center.
