JUNE 14, 2014 6pm – 9pm Contemporary Art Gallery | 555 Nelson Street FREE | RSVP here
Everyone involved in the 2014 Vancouver Draw Down is invited to a special closing party! Come wind down after a day of drawing with some cold drinks and an interactive performance by The Drawing Salon titled Bring us your protests.
Collaborate within a live drawing performance where audience members are asked to "bring us your protests." The protests are then re-interpreted in symbols and text drawings with the offered words then returned to audience members in the form of placards and banner.
Join us for this special event to wrap up a special day of art and drawing!
The Drawing Salon is a traveling program of drawing workshops led by artists. Through artist led group drawing activities the aim is to advance and promote the practice of contemporary drawing not only as a medium but as an influential art form in itself, with contemporary relevance. The Salon believes that the practice of observational drawing sharpens the intellect, and that drawing is essentially an honest and investigative activity and is at the core of contemporary art practice.
The Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG) is a non-profit public art gallery dedicated to the research, exhibition, education and documentation of contemporary visual art as it is practiced locally through to internationally. It aspires to generate significant audiences for its innovative and diverse programmes through free access and a profile that is international in scope.
