For the 16th time since February 2012, Hallwalls presents its twice-yearly drawing rally event, mid-summer edition. Invited artists will draw live in two 45 minute rounds, with silent auction of all drawings following each round. With opening bids set at an affordable $39, guests should not expect that all works will be bid too high to win a piece. While a Bill Maggio drawing set a drawing rally record in February 2018 by going for $750, works are won at all levels—from $39 to $50 to $150 and many points in between. It is the IDEAL situation for a budding collector or drawing enthusiast.
