NATIONAL DRAWING DAY 2021

Backwater Artists talk on film through a short video series on contemporary drawing. Curated and produced by studio member Ciara Rodgers.

To celebrate National Drawing Day 2021, Backwater Artists Group presents studio artists Stephen Doyle, Cassandra Eustace, Megan Eustace, Eileen Healy, Peter Nash and Ciara Rodgers in short films as they reflect on what drawing means to them and how it informs their practice from preparation to exhibition. 

In a collaboration with MTU Crawford College of Art and Design, Backwater Artists Group is also delighted to present a video introduction to Drawbridge, a new Drawing Research Network in the Heart of Cork City.  Research Assistant Anne-May Tabb reflects on five drawing projects which led up to the formation of this research hub, including their collaborations with BAG.

Filmed and produced by studio member Ciara Rodgers, the  series of videos will give an insight into projects, personal practice, residencies and exhibitions with an emphasis on the use of drawing, whether provisional or final. They will explore a variety of methodologies, from field sketching to performance, portraiture and figurative work to contemporary drawing practice. How drawing can capture real time and how artists use drawing as the basis for many of their projects, often crossing disciplines into sculpture, painting, printmaking and film.
