Aperitivo & Drawing Night with Kaitlin McDonough
28 January 2020 / 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
CIMA opens its unique and intimate setting to artists, students, and others interested in trying their hand at studying works from the Marino Marini: Arcadian Nudes exhibition through drawing — interacting with, analyzing, and drawing inspiration from the sculptor’s work.
Expanding upon the premise that drawing is the most optimal way to apprehend a work of art, this Drawing Night, led by artist Kaitlin McDonough (New York Studio School), will present drawing as a way of understanding, empathizing and seeing.
Materials will be provided and all skill levels are welcome!
6pm – Registration and exhibition viewing
6:10pm – Introduction by Kaitlin McDonough
6:30–7:45pm – Drawing in CIMA’s galleries
8pm – Evening concludes
Kaitlin McDonough paints exuberant abstractions, often incorporating objects and nontraditional supports. Equally fascinated by imagery and materiality, her content originates from the sensual inextricability of both and hybrid ways of perceiving. McDonough received her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and her BFA from Boston University, Summa cum laude. Prior to being based in New York, Kaitlin lived and worked in both Venice and Rome, Italy where she developed a close relationship with Italian art of the past and present. Her work has been exhibited throughout Italy–in Venice, Rome, Vicenza, Bologna, Verona–and in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Richmond and Serbia. She is the recipient of the Temple University Project Completion Grant and has participated in a residency at the Vermont Studio Center. Kaitlin McDonough is currently the Program Director and member of the Faculty at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture where her courses focus on drawing strategies, Color, and Painting on Paper.
