Living Proof: Sketches from Life is on exhibit at DRAW Gallery in Port Alberni from Dec. 10–31.

Sketches from Life comprises essential sketches of gesture, figures, clothing, expression, body language and more. A meet and greet with the artists and models takes place Friday, Dec. 18, 6-8 p.m. Everyone welcome.

This month’s featured artists—Sue Anderson, Colleen Clancy, Cynthia Bonesky, Christopher Finlayson, Jillian Mayne and Ann McIvor—are the explorer spirits of the 2015 Life Drawing workshop at DRAW. 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.

Visit DRAW online at www.drawgallery.com and on location at the corner of Melrose and Eighth Avenue. The gallery is open Thursdays and Fridays from 12–5 p.m. and by appointment. Please call Astrid at 250-724-2056 to arrange.
