I dropped in on the Art Bunch, a weekly artists’ get together, at Mugs Cafe in Argenta last week and took a look at the Quapaw Quarter Figure Drawing Group show there, which features work by Tim Ellison, Judith Faust, Jennifer Freeman, Jeanie Hursley, Marty Justice, Bonnie Nickol, Diana Shearon and Dominique Simmons. I figured I’d like it — but I didn’t know how much. It’s definitely worth a trip, especially if like me you love figure drawing.
Hursley’s soft touch (see above), Ellison’s ink washes, Justice’s fine mark, Simmons’ sturdy sketchiness … it’s a show that reveals how different artists handle the line. Check it out.
