Monster Drawing Rally 2016

Was glad to break out the ink and live draw again this year in support Southern Exposure at the Monster Drawing Rally.  The event was at a new venue this time around, The Minnesota Street Project, an art space in the Dogpatch district of San Francisco that offers sustainable spaces to art galleries, artists and related nonprofits.  Learn more about the Monster Drawing Rally and check out photos of the event here.

Subatomic Matters:

Every single entity is inherently composed of smaller elements. From afar, we view objects in their entirety, often overlooking the intricacies that constitute them. Is the sum of the whole more valuable than its components? These building blocks are utilized to express larger, more complex ideas, but this does not negate the importance of the blocks themselves.

Merchants of Reality presents: Subatomic Matters; an investigation of the value that each line, stroke, and stitch intrinsically holds, and how intentional application of a chosen method allows the viewer to derive meaning from calculated abstractions.

Featuring:

Bonnie Cunningham
Mariela Montero
Patricia Pauchnick
Maren Salomon
Shane York

And also an installation by the curators,
Kendall Berardino and Jessy Gaumann
