We had a great time at our annual Winter Solstice on Friday, December 21. The end of the world did not come. Instead, we gathered around warm fires and enjoy live Celtic music by local musicians, Megan Beller (fiddle), Michael Raitzyk (guitar) and friends. Many thanks to John Shields and Gertrude’s Restaurant for providing delicious refreshments.

Join this inaugural social event, where participants will create live drawings projected onto large screens while accompanied by DJs playing music. With multiple drawings happening at the same time, artists respond to the music, respond/collaborate with another drawing, or engage in battle drawing.
Details: Drawings will be projected via backlit overhead projectors. Artists will work on sheets of acetate laid over the projector. Artists may use any media that will adhere to the acetate including but not limited to: permanent marker, oil pencil, colored translucent mylar, dry-erase marker, paper cut-outs. We ask that wet media be kept to a minimum to avoid damage to the projectors. Drawing area is approximately 10″x10″. Artists will have around 30–45 min to complete a work before switching with another artist.
The first 30-45 minutes, children who would like to participate will have first priority.
Background: Our event is inspired by the popular Big Draw festival in the UK and the growing movement of Monster Draw rallys happening around the US. While BIG DRAW in the DELL is a public happening with all welcome to attend, for this innagural run we are asking participating artists to sign-up in advance of the event so we are sure to have the projectors/drawing spaces occupied at all times.
Volunteers: We are also looking for volunteers willing to assist with set-up and make sure the event runs smoothly. If you are interested in the event and would like to help out please let us know.
