Jesionowski Participates in Live Drawing

462_RosemaryJHenryChoisser_resizedRosemary Jesionowski is one of three artists who will contribute to a mural on the back wall of 1708 Gallery (Richmond, Virginia) during the opening reception of Exquisite Corpse.  This live event will take place during the First Fridays opening reception on Oct. 3 from 5 to 9 p.m.

The exquisite corpse is a surrealist party game that involves multiple artists contributing to a single (usually figurative) drawing.  The first artist begins the drawing, folds the paper to hide what he or she has drawn, and passes it on to the next artist, who follows suit.  The game can also be played with words.

During the live event, Jesionowski will add the middle section to a mural-sized exquisite corpse directly on the wall of the gallery.  Genesis Chapman will produce the first section on Thursday, October 2 and Michael Pierce will draw the final section of the piece on Saturday, Oct. 4.
