Open Drawing Session with Samantha Persons & Christopher Wallace
Saturday, June 4, 2016
2 - 4 PM

Join Samantha Persons and Christopher Wallace for an open drawing session on Saturday, June 4th, from 2 to 4 PM. Persons and Wallace's exhibition, Surface Dwellers, on view in the Cecily E. Horton Gallery tackles notions of narrative, pattern and obsession using an arsenal of 0.40-millimeter pens. Participants will be introduced to their drawing process. Ask questions, talk, snack and draw. Persons and Wallace are offering to share their studio pens, markers, hand cut stencils and paper. You need only to bring yourself and maybe a friend.
