Sumi Ink Club!

Sumi Ink Club is a participatory drawing project founded in 2005 by Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Employing the brush and black ink of traditional Sumi ink wash painting (a medium which Tobey explored following his travels through Asia), the Club produces work in open-to-the-public meetings in which people of all ages and skill are invited to contribute to a collaborative drawing. Using group drawing as a means to generate social interactions and sustain community connections, it is the artists’ hope that each drawing reflects the diversity of participants as well as the conversations and exchanges that occurred during its making. The Addison will host a series of three open drawing sessions (January 20, 21, and 24) led by the artists with the finished wall mural being unveiled at the opening on Friday, January 26. The mural will be on view through July 31, 2018.
