Sumi Ink Club!
January 27 - July 31, 2018
Sumi Ink Club
is a participatory drawing project founded in 2005 by Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Employing the brush and black ink of traditional Sumi ink wash painting, the Club produces work in open-to-the-public meetings in which people of all ages and skill are invited to contribute to a collaborative drawing. Using group drawing as a means to generate social interactions and sustain community connections, it is the artists’ hope that each drawing reflects the diversity of participants as well as the conversations and exchanges that occurred during its making. The Addison will host a series of three open drawing sessions led by the artists with the finished wall mural being unveiled at the opening on Friday, January 26th.
This exhibition is generously supported by the Winton Family Exhibition Fund.
