Draw by Night is back!
What: Kelowna's only bi-monthly drawing party
When: Friday, Sept. 25, 7-9 p.m.
Where: Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, 103-421 Cawston Avenue
Now in it’s 2nd year, Draw By Night: Kelowna is a collaborative drawing party, free to the public, which asks its participants to collectively and freely draw in a social setting on large rolls of paper. The objective is to be surrounded by like-minded creative individuals, listen and converse visually through drawing or be inspired by others to produce something individually. This bi-monthly event, organized by Visual Arts professor, Myron Campbell has been happening for the last year and a half.
"I started this event to create a comfortable, pressure-free space to draw in an effort to remove inhibitions while drawing while also mixing faculty, students, industry and the general public." says Campbell. "So far we’ve had parties at the Kelowna Art Gallery, the Alternator Centre and the Kelowna Museums. The response has been pretty great. We were featured on Global TV last year and we have an upcoming event during Culture Days at the end of the month."
The aim is to engage creative people from various disciplines throughout the community including students, industry professionals, visual artists, hobbyists and the general public and get them all drawing!
Inspired by the work by Ann Nicholson, the next theme celebrates our own inner warriors. The voices in our heads that guide us through good and bad times. As part of Kelowna's Culture Days, DBNers will get together and create character Artist Trading Cards to share and trade.
This event is free + open to the public! Come armed with your favourite drawing utensil or just bring your bad self and you can use our stuff. We will provide materials and food for your inspiration. Come draw with us!
