Sam Heimer goes to a lot of bars, to draw of course. In the right bar, you’ll find all sorts of characters. For Heimer, every bar in the city is a potential studio, every customer a potential subject. Why Are You Here? is a collection of the best of Heimer’s bar drawings, and an opportunity to make some yourself. Why Are You Here? includes of an interactive digital installation, dozens of drawings made in bars, and a selection of fully-realized ink-on-paper drawings based on bar drawings. At the opening reception, Heimer will be holding one of his drink-and-draw events, encouraging visitors to have a seat, observe the room, and sketch something out.
Stop by LMNL Gallery on Friday the 27th for a closing reception and your last chance to see Why Are You Here?.
