Caution – Artists Working, a Creative Commons Attribution (2.0) image from Doran’s photostream

On Friday, November 6th, you have the opportunity to watch art being created and then bid on that very art the same night! RawDraw is a high-impact drawing event happening at Neu Kirche Contemporary Art Center in East Deutschtown. Over 40 local artists have been invited to create original works before your eyes, which will then be sold via a silent auction.

Doors for RawDraw will open at 6:00 p.m. and the artists will start drawing at 6:30. As the works are finished, they’ll be hung up and bids can then be placed. The auction closes at 8:45 p.m. and winning bids will be announced shortly thereafter.

In addition to watching art in the making, they’ll be live music from Brewer’s Row, food and drink.

Admission is $10, and proceeds from the event provide direct support to Neu Kirche programming. You can purchase tickets online here.

RawDraw is being sponsored by Blick Art Materials, Utrecht Art Supply, Penn Brewing, and Artist and Craftsman Supply.
