Drawn to Life
An Exhibition of Works
Kirkwall Life Drawing Group
28th April - 5th May 2018
The Life Drawing Group has met once a month for many years, initially in Burray and Holm and latterly in premises kindly lent by Sutherland's Pharmacy. Many well known Orkney artists have been members over the years and it continues to have a strong following.
Life drawing, drawing the unclothed model from life, is regarded as one of the most challenging and rewarding forms of art. For some it is an end in itself and for others it is a technical exercise, the basis for much figurative art including portraiture and sculpture. The group generally begins a session with short poses of a few minutes and progresses to twenty or thirty minute poses.
The group is grateful to its models for their time and patience and for giving their permission for the exhibition.
You can contact the group via the Northlight website - meetings are on the second Saturday of each month from 10.30am - 1pm.
