Artist's talk and critique at Keest Center on May 12 

As part of the effort of Logan County Arts to educate the public and create awareness of all types of visual arts in the community, there will be an artist's talk and critique at 7 p.m., Monday, May 12, at the Salvation Army Keest Center, 307 N. Kickapoo in Lincoln.

Brian K Simpson, life drawing instructor at the McLean County Arts Center, Bloomington, will present a talk, "Discussing Techniques of Life Drawing."

Simpson will show several of his own drawings and discuss them, critique LCA members' drawings as well as those of the general public, and give tips and techniques to help improve figure drawings.

Simpson left the academic world in 1984 after completing his graduate exhibition in photography at Illinois State University, then spent the next 20 years exploring life drawing while making a living as a bookseller — he owns and operates Babbit's Books in Normal. He has been affiliated with the McLean County Arts Center for a number of years.

Admission will be charged at the door. People attending are asked to bring a few of their drawings to share with Simpson.
