Aperitivo & Drawing Night
16 April 2019 / 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
CIMA opens its unique and intimate setting to artists, students, and others interested in trying their hand at studying works from the Metaphysical Masterpieces exhibition through drawing — interacting with, analyzing, and drawing inspiration from Morandi, Sironi, and Carrà’s art.
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 close-looking and transcription techniques as methods for understanding, empathizing and seeing.
All skill levels welcome!
Limited to 30 participants.
6pm – Registration and exhibition viewing
6:10pm – Introduction by Kaitlin McDonough
6:30-7:30pm – Drawing in CIMA’s galleries
7:30pm – Discussion
8pm – Evening concludes
About the artist:
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. The resulting paintings highlight her interests in performative language, strategy, and energy technology. 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 Venice, Italy 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, 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.
