Felice Koenig: Drawing Together (2015)


CEPA Gallery’s Big Orbit Project Space is pleased to present Felice Koenig: Drawing Together curated by CS1 Curatorial Projects.

In Drawing Together, Felice Koenig gathers the central tenets of her meditative artistic practice (process and connection) and extends them beyond solitary painting to collaborative drawing. She expands the loving gesture of her resonantly layered paintings to co-create works with others. Her interest is in exploring the nature of creation.

Over three weekends in the spring, Koenig will draw in real time with a series of participants, using the simple tools of youth – paper and colored markers. Sitting opposite one another and working simultaneously on the same piece of paper, the goal is to play as a means of creating news bonds. In this way, drawing becomes social practice.

Koenig will be available for 90-minute sessions for the first three weekends, April 24 to May 10, Friday to Sunday, during Big Orbit’s open hours from 12 to 6PM. The public is welcome to visit the gallery or to set up an appointment in advance online. Everyone is encouraged to participate, especially non-artists. This practice celebrates the simple act of engaging with color and line.

An opening reception will take place at Big Orbit Project Space on Friday, April 24th from 7-10pm. The gallery will be open for drawing sessions during the day prior to the artist reception.
