Drawn Together: by Manitoba Quick Draw Art Club
Artist Reception: Saturday August 10th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
The Manitoba Quickdraw Art Club is a group of artists ‘Drawn Together’ through the unique combination of a shared passion for creating art, geography and their place in time with access to social media. In February 2017 a small group of Manitoba artists were invited to join an experimental social media Facebook group, created by Lori Zebiere, with the goal being to inspire each other through periodic drawing challenges. Members were encouraged to invite others who they thought would enjoy the challenge experience. Through word of mouth and the power of social media sharing, the group has grown to nearly 60 members with challenges issued on a monthly basis.
This show celebrates a special contemporary bond, the online internet relationship, and its ability to overcome distance. Many of the MQAC members live in remote rural areas and given our long winters and often treacherous travel conditions feel isolated for many months of the year. Social media is the perfect way to overcome this isolation and continue to remain inspired and connected to a relevant and regional artistic community.
