The Drawing Box is an experimental socionomic drawing project connecting artists from all over the world. The Drawing box is a social network / facebook (secret group) founded on the 27th December 2012. The group was formed by Outland arts member Diane Henshaw to create an open 'but private by invite only' forum for circulatory discussion about contemporary drawing with artists Andrew Crane, John Crabtree and Patil Rajendra, all of which had a collective synergy within their artistic practice. Quickly the group grew to a membership through word of mouth of close to 100+ artists.
The group decided to experiment with a spontaneous drawing exhibition plan and many of its newly formed membership are now creating five new works each scaled to A5 and participating in this inaugural mail art project under the auspices of the Drawing Box, in whatever mode of drawing that might be.
Opens: May 16 from 8pm. Continues to June 4, 2013.
10am – 4pm Monday to Friday and 11am – 3pm Saturdays
