Drawn Festival descends on Vancouver

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Make a curving, gestural line for the Drawn Festival, which celebrates drawing around town from Saturday (July 16) to August 6. Exhibits range from Petley Jones Gallery’s The Power of Line show, with works by the likes of Jack Shadbolt, Andra Ghecevici, and Michael Hermesh, to the Burnaby Art Gallery’s The Solitudes of Place: Recent Drawings by Ann Kipling. Head to Gallery Jones for Anselmo Swan’s renderings of Hostess Cupcakes and other name-brand desserts, or visit the Elissa Cristall Gallery to see Louise Phillips attempt to make drawings that equal a line 55 kilometres long—the supposed life span of a simple pencil.
