VALDOSTA — Drawproject’s first exhibit raised approximately $2,200 for Valdosta State University student art scholarships, says the show’s creator Jamie Harmon.

With Drawproject, Harmon gave artists a sheet of paper and asked they draw a picture for the project, auction and exhibit. As Harmon received the drawings, he posted them on the project’s Web site.

“The initial idea was to invite artists that I have met and worked with over the last 10 years to take a piece of paper ... and draw,” notes Harmon, who is also gallery director for the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts. “There were no rules or definition of what a ‘drawing’ is ... only their interpretation.”

These drawings ranged from scribbles to detailed drawings in pencil to color studies to full-scale illustrations from numerous Valdosta artists as well as artists Harmon has either met through his travels or who have found drawproject via Internet or word of mouth.

Visitors bid on the art during a silent auction earlier this week.

The exhibit remains on display through May 8, VSU University Center, Entrance 5, off North Patterson Street. Viewers may also visit the Web site (www.drawproject.com).
