Invited by artist and guest curator Michelle Weinberg, more than 50 artists will contribute drawings of their workplaces in a unique project that exposes the diverse ways that artists perceive their own creative work and lives.
What is a workplace like when the conventional definitions of work and play don’t apply? Artists Draw Their Studios is an opportunity for the public to appreciate the intimate and eccentric relationships artists have with their own workplaces. No guidelines have been given other than that the works be predominantly drawing. Artists at different stages of their careers have been invited to participate. Some drawings are observational, others conceptual representations of a studio.
Comments by the artists on their work lives will be incorporated into the exhibition installation, and a reading table in the gallery will share published guides to artists, their careers and their workspaces.
Most of the artists participating live and work in South Florida. Some hail from other regions but have ties to South Florida.
