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. Visitors were invited to join the artists for open drawing sessions, with the finished wall mural being unveiled on Friday, January 26.

Generous support for this exhibition was provided by the Winton Family Exhibition Fund.
