Bodybuilder Wil White, who will be modelling at Arbor Gallery's "Evening of Scandalous Sketching."

Scandalous sketching at Arbor Gallery cultural centre

Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre will be hosting a one-time-only fundraiser titled “Scandalous Sketching” on September 16 at Zudio in Vankleek Hill.

Attendees will spend the evening learning about the human form—specifically the male human form—through art techniques as instructed by well-known Vankleek Hill artist, Susan Jephcott.

Jephcott will guide attendees as they use charcoal to sketch the outlines and contours of a live male model. As she explains, charcoal is well-suited for this type of sketching, given that it is a “very forgiving medium”.

Organizers describe the event as being similar to the “Drinking and Doodling” held previously in the area. They stress that the point of the evening is not to “create art” but to have fun while raising money for Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre.

The model will be championship body builder, Wil White, whose physique will be on prominent display beneath special lights to highlight the forms of his body. Additionally, individuals and groups will be able to pose with Wil using various props provided by the organizers. Photos will be available for $5. Both beer and wine will also be available for purchase at the event.

Tickets for the event cost $45 and include a free glass of wine as part of purchase. Tickets are on sale now at The Review, Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre, and also by phone at 613-851-5870. Space is limited to 36 people; reservations will not be taken. For other questions, call the event organizers at 514-209-0259.
