**** This January at CR Framing the walls have work created during the sessions.****
This will be the 3rd year in a row for figurative work hanging at CR in January.
In 2012 Big Al showed 30 years of figure work in a show titled "Sweet Lines, Fabulous Form".
It was during the opening of "Sweet Lines" that local artist, Sue Clanton said she wanted to draw from models like those on my Dr. Sketchy's wall at the gallery. The next time I saw Sue she asked if I had found a model yet and then I knew she was serious.
Figure Sketch sessions began in February of 2012.
In 2013 the show was "Visions of the Figure" featuring art created during the 2012 Figure Sketch sessions with participating artists.
This year's show will be a little more informal. Instead of a traditional opening we will be doing a Sunday Figure Sketch Session on January 19,
2014 from 1-4pm.
Here's the press release crafted by frequent contributor to Figure Sketch Nancy Roberts:
