Mike Perry is back with a second installment of the live drawing event and exhibition “Nudes”. Last year he and Josh Cochran put out an open call for nude models for a marathon drawing session leading up to a one-night exhibition of all the work. This time, the roster of artists has increased to eight, including Deanne Cheuk, Jon Han, Lisa Hanawalt, Santtu Mustonen, Leif Parsons, and Niky Roehreke, along with Perry and Cochran. This is a unique spin on a classic subject familiar to most everyone who has ever taken a figure drawing class in art school, but with a more abstract approach indicative of each artist’s individual approach and aesthetic. I’m excited to see the range of interpretations this lineup is sure to produce. The drawing sessions are this Friday and Saturday, January 25th and 26th, with the exhibition following Saturday night at Kinfolk Studios in Brooklyn, NY. The call for models is still open, so if you’ve ever wanted to be a nude model for a group of amazing artists, now is your chance! Sign-up info can be found here.
