An update about WCAGA Exhibits and Drawing Marathons of 2015.

WCAGA Exhibits
WCAGA’s last exhibit of 2015 is currently showing at the Lyndon House Art Center in Athens GA. MARK is a WCAGA members exhibit, curated by Georgia Strange, a professor at UGA.

In conjunction with the MARK exhibit, Lyndon House Art Center sponsored two drawing programs; Sept 17 and Oct. 10. These ‘Draw Tables’, as they are called, are open to the public and our MARK exhibitors, in particular, have been invited to participate.

The Exhibit, MARK, is up till Oct. 10, 2015. We have 38 WCAGA members and 9 invited women artists from the Athens area in the show. The MARK exhibit is held in two gallery spaces, The Atrium and the Ronnie Lukasiewicz Gallery on the first floor. 

WCAGA Drawing Marathons
The Drawing Marathon Program is finishing it’s 4th year. Initially, this was a one year program that simply kept going almost of it’s own accord. Our last Drawing Marathon for 2015 is taking place in Helen DeRamus’s studio at the Artists Resource Center in Marietta. This session has been dubbed Figure2Days. Our focus will be the human figure and the session will last Friday and Saturday (Oct. 2,3). Fridaywe will have a live model. We’ll spend the day on short poses that are meant to inspire our second day, Saturday’s, drawings. 

Upcoming for 2016, we have been invited back to Georgia Perimeter College in Clarkson’s Media Center’s 4th floor gallery in March. Dates to be determined.

Drawing Marathon
Our 2016 Drawing Marathon Program hopefully will continue to evolve new formats for this program to keep it challenging and inspiring.

A Note to our members: 
I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you over the years because you have involved yourself in WCAGA programs. I hope you will continue to seek interaction with your fellow artists. If you are new to our organization, come and share your knowledge, excitement and vision with us. 

Thank you
