For the second time during the pandemic era, Hallwalls hosts its popular twice-yearly drawing rally as a virtual, pre-recorded event, with its “broadcast premiere” on Wednesday, February 24 at 7:00 pm. Online bidding for works will be available on here through Sunday, February 28th at 9:00 pm.
The video and work images will be free to view, but in order to bid, visitors will be required to pay $5 to register.
For those who may be unfamiliar with our drawing rallies, invited artists are asked to produce a drawing in any media during a 45-minute drawing session on a sheet of paper measured 12 x 18 inches. There is never a theme and artists are free to draw what they choose. Once drawn, the works are silent-auctioned—in the case of this virtual version, over the course of four days—with opening bids for all works starting at $39.
