Drawn & Quartered 8, Sat., 4.23, 7–10PM

'Conceived as a cross between a World Wrestling Federation match and an art school life drawing session, Drawn & Quartered has become an established part of Cleveland’s ever-more-bustling visual arts scene. Teams of artists draw models either striking a series of quick poses or a single pose for more than two hours. Afterward comes Olympics-style public judging. The team with the most points wins a trophy and bragging rights for the next year.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday, April 23 at HEDGE Gallery in the 78th Street Studios. In addition to 2015 trophy holders Murray Hill Life Drawing Group, competitors will represent Dr. Sketchy Cleveland, the West Side Markers, and the Northern Ohio Illustrators Society (NOIS).'

During the 6th annual Monster Drawing Rally, SPACES will turn artists' private studio practices into public performance. Over 100 of Cleveland's freshest artists will create new artworks on the spot, with materials provided by SPACES. When the drawings are completed, they will be hung on the walls for purchase at $75 each.
