Trust Collective invites you to this month's installation of DRAW SPACE, North Portland's monthly drink + draw event! This month we celebrate English artist + occultist AUSTIN OSMAN SPARE, who became famous during the early-twentieth century for his exquisite linework + provocative imagery. Considered the best portraitist in England at a very young age, Spare had a prolific + tragic career, falling into obscurity toward the end of his life. In addition to being the first fine artist to exhibit his work in bars + taverns, Spare is known for his exploration + development of creative techniques based upon his theories about the relationship between the conscious + unconscious self. AUTOMATIC WRITING + DRAWING are two such techniques that allow the hand to move freely across the paper, inviting chance to guide the way.
Stop by DRAW SPACE this Tuesday, August 15th, between 7 + 11 pm, to create a spontaneous work of art in any medium, and have the opportunity to exhibit it at our ONE NIGHT, inaugural art show, LAST THURSDAY, AUGUST 31st, from 6-8 pm, at our new EAST SIDE work space!
