EVENTS A-Z

Monday Drawing Jam

In-person

Hosted by Monday Drawing Jam

Monday Drawing Jam is an ongoing, live-drawing event by and of seven artists from around the globe. Since April 2020, when Covid ended most in-person connections, we have gathered on zoom every Monday to pose and draw. We drew images from life under the confines of quarantine, the time limits of zoom, and the restricted format of computer screens. These limitations challenged traditional portrait-making and pushed us to create a new, resilient type of art.

Our resulting body of work reflects the relief, joy, and despair we shared. Few of us knew each other when we started working together. A striking aspect of this project is seeing one portrait-sitter six different ways: as six other people saw them that day. During a time when being seen was rare, these portraits show that we were in the world.

A selection of our body of work joins the Creative Resilience group exhibit, curated by Adrienne Wheeler.

Featured Artists: Melisa Gerecci, Yvette Molina, Jenn Dierdorf, BA Thomas, Keer Tanchak, Dorry Spikes, Jacqueline Ferrante
