Seasonal Special Happenings

Wall Eye Gallery Showing

When: Sat., May 7 2011

You can find a battle of the bands anywhere. But how often can you see a sketch-off? For the third year running, Wall Eye Gallery's Drawn & Quartered pits four local figure-drawing groups (the Murray Hill Drawing Group, Dr. Sketchy Cleveland, Pretentious Tremont Artists of the Literary Cafe, and the Northern Ohio Illustrators' Society) against each other to vie for prizes, glory, and the votes of established artists and the engaged audience — including you. "Think Wide World of Wrestling meets art-school cabaret!" says Wall Eye Gallery partner Stephanie Lipscomb. Among the bouts: caricatures, gestures, and left-handed sketching (or right-handed, if you're a leftie). Food and drink will be provided, as will drawing materials for individuals who feel up to the challenge. Some rounds will even feature live models, including the costumed performers of Morrison Dance. Finished artwork will be available for purchase. It's all free and happening this evening from 6 to 10 p.m., with the contest starting at 7 p.m. Wall Eye Gallery is at 5304 Detroit Ave. For more information, call 216-640-7769 or go to walleyegallery.com. — Joseph Clark
