The Naperville Art League’s “Go Figure” exhibit will feature the work of more than 25 participants of the Figurative Art League of Chicago life drawing workshops.
The public is invited to the opening reception from 1 to 4 p.m. April 19.
Created by local artists of all levels, the pieces in this unique exhibit allow the viewer to celebrate the art of the human figure.
“Drawing the figure is one of the basics in the ‘art of seeing,'” said Art League member and exhibitor Maureen McKee. “It teaches perspective, composition, proportions and human expression.”
The following award-winning artists will be offering these demonstrations April 19: John Mudaro (basic drawing), from 1:15 to 1:35 p.m.; Maureen McKee (color in pastel), from 1:45 to 2:05 p.m.; and Laura Lein-Svencner (collage), from 2:15 to 2:35 p.m.
“The human figure is one of the most enduring themes in the visual arts,” said Debbie Venezia, executive director of the Naperville Art League. “Dating back to prehistoric times, the human form can be seen in cave drawings and we find that it is still popular among artists and art lovers today.”
“Go Figure” will be on display from April 17 to April 21 at the Naperville Fine Art Center and Gallery, 508 N. Center St.
Hours are noon to 4 p.m. April 17; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 18; 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. April 19, 20 and 21.
