This event is presented by The Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters and Revel. This event is part of the Let's Draw exhibition currently open at the James Watrous Gallery. Through pioneering on-air lessons, the WHA program "Let's Draw" brought art education to schoolchildren throughout Wisconsin from 1936 to 1970. This exhibit combines a look at the historic "Let’s Draw" program with the work of six contemporary Wisconsin artists who have very diverse approaches to drawing: Emily Belknap (Cedarburg), Tony Conrad (Appleton), Nina Ghanbarzadeh (New Berlin), Lee Mothes (Kaukauna), Zach Mory (Milwaukee), and Katie Ries (Manitowoc). Their work ranges from tightly drawn realist landscape imagery (Mothes and Belknap) and loose "field note" sketches (Ries) to finely textured, large-scale abstraction (Conrad and Mory) and fluid images built up with calligraphic script (Ghanbarzadeh). For more information on the exhibition, including hours, please visit the James Watrous Gallery's exhibition page.
