Mid-Summer Night's Draw: Live Drawing Rally and Silent Auction

Asbury Hall at Babeville

Doors open at 7 pm.
Drawing begins promptly at 7:15

Join us in Asbury Hall at Babeville in beautiful downtown Buffalo for Hallwalls’ twice annual live drawing rally event. Initiated in February 2012, the Drawing Rally event allows audience members to watch their art being drawn in two intense 45 minute drawing sessions, followed by a silent auction where these same works can be purchased. All participating artists have kindly donated their time and the resulting drawing, in order that Hallwalls can apply a low opening bid to each work and encourage some affordable art purchases. In line with our thirty-eighth year of operations, opening bids for all works will begin at $38.

Participating artists will include:

Bruce Adams Rita Argen Auerbach
Mary Begley Marie-Claire Bozant

Stephanie Rohlfs
Put One Over

Rohlfs' work springboards from a clean surface appearance and concise formal gestures into a hybridized set of works that make the artist seem part minimalist, part colorist, part humorist. Rohlfs' sculptural gestures are so adroitly specific and contained that each element—a field of color, a drooping form, a slab of shelving—takes on more imminent and emphatic articulation ...
