Los Angeles-based drawing collective Sumi Ink Club is in residency through the end of May in the Pasadena Museum of California Art’s Project Room. The club executes topsy-turvy, super-detailed, collaborative drawings using — what else? — ink on paper. Their group drawings are a true social gathering, playing off interactions that bleed into everyday life.
In their new installation for the PMCA, the artists hold weekly events to fill the room with their signature sumi ink drawings. The next gathering is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 21, from 1 to 5 p.m., and visitors will be provided with a brush and ink to add their own flourishes to the walls.
The club welcomes the public — “all humans, all ages, all styles,” they say — to these drawing events.
Through May 30, Pasadena Museum of California Art, 490 E. Union St., (626) 568-3665, pmcaonline.org, sumiinkclub.com
