Lawrence Gallery Exhibit – CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC

October 30 – December 31, 2020
Lawrence Gallery
‘Celebrating our COVID Shutdown with Art’  – During the months of isolation after the on-set of the virus, everyone in the country chose to spend their time differently.  An ambitious group of SVWC residents filled their time productively by participating in online drawing classes. For a couple of them, it was their initial experience with drawing. Several others had years of practice in drawing and painting. One novice was so excited about this newfound hobby that he decided that the drawings would make an excellent exhibit in Lawrence Gallery. Since the next scheduled show had to be postponed, his idea was the perfect solution. Thanks to the enthusiastic coordination by cottage resident Jim Anderson, with support from Art Instructor Gale Bowman-Harlow, this new exhibit will be a fresh alternative for the gallery. The artwork was born from the “How to Draw” video class and “Drawing Together” accessed via We hope that all will delight in the variety of pencil and charcoal sketches on display for the next couple of months.
