GENEVA – The annual "Drawn Together Colored Pencil Show," featuring over 150 pieces created by the artists of Beech Tree Studio, will be displayed from 1 to 4 p.m. Nov. 23 at Chapelstreet Church, 3435 Keslinger Road, Geneva.
The free event will offer light refreshments and the music of Daniel Lim.
“The 'Drawn Together' art show is a chance for colored pencil artists to share the work they have created over the past year,” said Andria Burchett, owner of Beech Tree Studio. “It’s part exhibit, part celebration.”
Burchett, who teaches the fine art of colored pencil, said the work is not as simple as just picking a color out of the box.
“Most of the artwork is done by adding light layers of multiple colors,” Burchett said. “You want to create the color by combining multiple layers of colored pencil instead of just picking one color.”
