Dunkeld's first Draw Club was a great success.

Thanks to Gareth Colliton and his Warrnambool/Hamilton/Melbourne crew we ended up with a total of 19 artists who came along and created some fantastic drawings over about 4 hours.

Gareth has been organising a regular draw club in Warrnambool for the past few years and was instrumental in organising a contingent of visiting artists who drew the night away inside Dunkeld's historic station building, otherwise known as Off the Rails Gallery.

Food and wine was shared and joyful chatter was periodically broken by intense drawing sessions where all eyes were focused on Bobby the model who did a great job sitting still for very long periods of time.

A selection of these drawings were on display at Off the Rails over the weekend, with the gallery open from 11am to 4pm, both days.

Due to the success of the evening it was felt that we should hold another Draw Club next month (on Friday, March 6) in time for the forthcoming Open Galleries and Gardens weekend.

This time round we'd like to advertise the Dunkeld Draw Club well in advance of the event in order to gather together as many local drawers as possible.

Stay tuned for future posts about this event.
