The Long Hello is an exhibition of the large-scale drawings produced on the walls of The Arcade during the Sumi Ink Club‘s first Austin meeting as part of the VAC Grand Opening Celebration weekend.
As part of the Visual Arts Center Opening Celebration weekend, Sumi Ink Club will hold their meeting for the first time in Austin. This Sunday afternoon event will result in a collaborative, topsy-turvy, detailed drawing using sumi ink on the freshly created walls of The Arcade. The drawing produced by the Sumi Ink Club meeting will remain on view in The Arcade until October 16, 2010.
The Sumi Ink Club is a drawing society that holds weekly meetings worldwide, which are non-hierarchical in nature with an open invitation for all ages and all styles of participants to join in creating a new work of art. Sumi Ink Club uses drawing as a means to open and fortify social interactions that bleed into everyday life.
