Living Proof, Sketches from Life, is the latest exhibit featured at DRAW Gallery until Dec. 21.

Living Proof comprises essential sketches of gesture, figures, clothing, expression, body language and more.

This month’s featured Artists, Colleen Clancy, Lily Finlayson, Jillian Mayne, Sheena McCorquodale, Graham McDonald, Ann McIvor, Bill Oliphant and Tamas Zalatnai are the explorer spirits of our 2013 Life Drawing workshop.

With more than 30 years of combined experience in portrait drawing, these courageous artists are allowing their work-in-progress to be viewed unaltered and unfinished, gallery owner Astrid Johnston said.

“Life Drawing is about viewing the human form through the raw emotion of your own gestures. It’s all about capturing the spirit within.

“Whether it’s the opportunity of seizing a spectacular moment in time or the thrill of catching an emotion at its best.

“In one brief second, we have the opportunity to experience that moment, the excitement is sharing that with you.”

An artist’s reception will be held on Friday, Dec. 6 from 6-8 p.m. at the gallery, located at the corner of Melrose Street and Eighth Avenue.

The gallery is open Thursday through Saturday from 12–5 p.m. and online all the time at www.drawgallery.com.
