Oxygen Art Centre hosts final 'The Big Draw' event

Oxygen Art Centre transforms the gallery into a community open studio over three Sundays this Fall as part of  the world-wide event known as “The Big Draw.”

The third and final session will be held on Sunday, November 17, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Facilitated by Oxygen Art Centre member and artist Anita Levesque, “The Big Draw” theme for 2019 is #DrawnToLife and explores the healing and unifying impact of mark making and drawing.

Each session foucusd on a different theme. Events are free or by donation. Open to everyone, whatever age or experience.

The theme for this session is “Diversity is strength.” Explore mark making through experimental drawing tools and drawing machines, drawing with sound, building a collaborative community large scale temporary mural directly on the Oxygen Art Centre walls. In addition to visual art marking we will build a community feedback loop to be shared on Kootenay Co-Op Radio, “Poetry for Keeps.” It will be reverberated throughout the community, a collaboration you will not want to miss. 

Oxygen Art Centre is committed to ensuring all exhibitions, programs, and events are accessible to visitors. Our facilities are wheelchair accessible and equipped with one accessible washroom. Please contact Oxygen if you have any questions or concerns about this event.

“The Big Draw” is generously supported by Osprey Community Foundation, BC Lions Club, and Nelson and District Credit Union.
