Come and draw with Renee Petropoulos in the Interior Forest.
Monday, May 20, 11am – 2pm, Wednesday, May 22, 12 – 3pm, Friday, May 24, 4 – 7pm
As part of Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest, Alexandra Grant’s residency at 18th Street Arts Center, she has invited both the public and other artists to lead drawing sessions to join her in illustrating Hélène Cixous’s book “Philippines”.
Renee Petropoulos holds a fine arts degree from UCLA and lives and works in Venice, California. Petropoulos is a painter whose work has become increasingly three-dimensional, reflecting an interest in decorative forms and images of different cultures. Heavily influenced by street art, her works often involve several layers of painted imagery. Her public art commissions include a large painted ceiling at the downtown Los Angeles Public Library, a series of sculptures in Culver City, and a collaborative project for the Municipal Services Building in downtown Philadelphia.
