‘Now and Then’ at XL Projects features work from Syracuse’s Open Figure Drawing group
New and past works created by artists from Open Figure Drawing, Syracuse’s community-based drawing group for people of all abilities, are the subject of the exhibition “Now and Then: Open Figure Drawing Group Exhibition 2011” at XL Projects, 307–313 S. Clinton St., Syracuse. The show, which is free and open to the public, is on view June 2-July 24. An opening reception will be held Thursday, June 2, from 6-8 p.m. XL Projects’ summer exhibition hours are Thursday-Sunday, noon-6 p.m.
The Open Figure Drawing group offers an inexpensive drawing experience to members of the Syracuse community. Participants draw from unclothed models and can attend on a drop-in basis. They become part of a supportive artistic community that networks about exhibitions, workshops, grants and other related events. Learn more at http://www.openfiguredrawing.com.
