A body of fine drawings by Dan Thompson will beautify the walls of this Southern institution this spring. Find out when and where here!

The Southern Atelier: A Center of Fine Art in Sarasota, Florida, will soon open a can’t-miss solo exhibition of recent drawings by Dan Thompson. Beginning tomorrow, March 31, and running through April, the show will encourage viewers to “see with your own eyes an artist’s dialogue and communication with his sitter in expressive, original, figurative drawings,” the center says. “This will be the first time a collection of Dan Thompson’s art works will be on display in Sarasota, Florida.”

An opening reception will be hosted at the center tomorrow evening at 6 p.m. “The evening of creative energy will also include a Literary Arts reflection, a spoken word performance, live music, refreshments and drinks,” the center continues. “We will also be discussing the answers to what makes collecting fine art worthwhile in today’s era.”
