ARTIST NEWS

Odette Graskie Drawing Sessions

Odette is an artist who usually draws her subjects covertly from life, and over the course of two weekends in February many people voluntarily (and safely) offered their time, attention and their faces in support of an artist who is unable to attain her usual subject matter due to the global crisis. ​ We want to thank all participants for joining in and helping to create a safe and comfortable space for this wonderful interactive experience! ​Odette now has many new faces for her upcoming body of work, perhaps you will spot yours in her upcoming show in May!! We are also pleased to announce, due to the success of the drawing session, we will be hosting another session in May. Date to be announced.
