Wednesday Night: A Midwinter’s Draw at Hallwalls

Filed under: Art

This could only happen on a February 29: On Wednesday evening in Asbury hall at Babeville, 30 celebrated local artists will be drawing live in Asbury Hall at Babeville, and the completed works will be auctioned on the same night, with the proceeds to benefit Hallwalls.

The drawings will be produced in two 45-minute sessions, and the starting (but certainly not final) bid for each will be a low, low $37, in honor of Hallwalls’s 37 years of supporting and disseminating cutting-edge art. Doors open at 7pm, and admission to the event is just $5; there’s a cash bar, as well as a wine tasting by City Wine Merchant. Music by DJ Arson Daily.

The artists on hand: Bruce Adams, Mary Begley, Marie Claire Bozant, Kyle Butler, Scott Bye, Caitlin Cass, Mille Chen, Charles Clough, AJ Fries, Amy Greenan, Dana Hatchett, Tom Holt, Mark Lavatelli, Joan Linder, Ann Muntges, Esther Neisen, Ogre, Alicia Paolucci, Nancy J. Parisi, Dana Saylor, Katherine Sehr, Jeff Sherven, Rich Tomasello, Benjamin Van Dyke, Kurt Von Voetsch, Alfonso Volo, Ripley Whiteside, and Sara Zak.

Support Hallwalls, watch artists in action, pick up something for your living room wall. It’s Leap Day; don’t stay at home.
