Opening of the Drawing Exchange show - for two years, Ramsey Arnaoot mailed drawings to trade with artists around the world. This is an opening of the drawings he received.

Featured artists include: Irana Douer, Joe Grillo, Billy and Laura Grant, Kinya Hanada (Mumbleboy), Julian Gatto, Maximo Pedraza, Martin Legon, Anita Montecucco, Max Galyon, and Mike Ball.

Note - this is a continuing project. If you would like to trade drawings with me, please let me know and we can set it up. I will be in the Middle East for the next year at least, so it might take me a bit to get settled, but I will definitely be continuing the exchange.
8pm and onwards
The Pen16 Club continues - Pen16 is a collaborative drawing club which meets the 16th of every month. Pens are encouraged and pencils are not - club members are encouraged to trust in the fallibility of their own trembling hands.
