The Practice of Drawing / The Language of Art

Figure Drawing Group

The Winona Arts Center presents “The Practice of Drawing/ the Language of Art” by a number of local and regional artists who participate in the Tuesday evening life-drawing group at SMU. This very brief exhibit will be on display from September 28-30th. The public is invited to a closing reception with the artists on Friday, September 30th from 4:00-6:30pm.

The life-drawing group has met for 7 years. It began as a way for community artists and students to draw the human form together one evening a week. The group meets every Tuesday from 6-8pm to draw. No instruction is provided. Partcipants share in the cost of the model. New members are welcome. Contact Julie Johnston at or Michelle Cochran at for more information about the drawing group or about modeling.

The Winona Arts Center is located at 228 East 5th Street. Gallery hours for the exhibit will be 4-7pm on Wednesday and Thursday or by appointment.
