The Graphite Social

The Graphite Social The Graphite Social is a night for Artists & enthusiasts to draw, meet, mingle, make art & watch art be made in a sexy beautiful space. The Graphite Social was conceived by Shaunna Witt in late '12 & brought to life with the help of Lesley Cortez.

The 1st Social was a success thanks in no small part to the collaboration of a group of artists that came together to make this dream come true. Alexander Dial & Lele Raggio performed acrobatic feats on a modeling stand, & DJ TheoryCraft played his magic mix, & Miss Morgan tended bar with some heat. From that 1st opening night, the momentum has just continued to grow & we continue to come up with newer& more interesting things; & we’ll keep doing just that.

To avoid confusion with the tagging; it is the wonderful artistic talents of Mr. Shieh in this piece & the modeling was all done & done well by the ever loved Stu.

I want to see the work you guys did last Friday! Victoria Bearden gave us 1 of her oil demos still in process, Mr. Mancilla posted his photo-images showing us his keen eye and unique view of the night, then Miguel Angel Reyes Illustrator was so incredibly generous to share with us 3 of his exquisite sketches. If you're shy, private message me the photo & I'll post anonymously. The 1st to send me something (no stick figures ect) will receive a thank you gift from the Graphite Social. Thanks guys and gals!

Done by and graciously shared by the so very talented Miguel Angel Reyes Illustrator

Friday nights Graphite Social

01/27/2013

Artists- feel free to share any of your sketches or paintings from Friday night after you have finished them. I'd like to try to save a few images and I was just too busy to save a few snap shots. :(

01/26/2013

Finally home and what can I say but that was one for the record books. Artists showed up by the numbers as did the art appreciators. The dames from Drop Dead Dames Burlesque did not fail to turn it out and leave us all breathless and wanting more! more! more! As did Micheal Madamba's delicious treats. The music from TheoryCraft was on point as it always is and as always, the night was over way way too soon. Until next time folks!

01/25/2013

For those new to ArtGym, rules are: we leave it as it was when we came, so Artists working in oils and large scale acrylics, please bring a drop cloth to work underneath you.

01/25/2013

It's it! It's here! It's party time! I should still be sleeping but there is too much to do. This party is gonna be one to remember folks. Bring your drawing supplies because these dames are gonna be looking hot hot hot! If you're not an artist yet, you will want to be by the end of the night. :)
