Artists Mark Burt and Robert Trudeau sketching at the Agora Borealis on Sat, Oct 25, 3 to 5 pm, alongside trio Twang Darkly

Compulsive sketchers Mark Burt and Robert Robert E Trudeau will engage in a surrealist drawing game called Exquisite Corpse.

The back-and-forth drawing session will take place on Saturday, Oct 25, at the Agora Borealis, 421 Lake St, Shreveport. The two artists will also chat with art lovers and sign work that they sell.

Burt is is known for fantastical creatures and detailed, interplanetary landscapes. He has been published in Suspect Device Comic Anthology Volume 3 and 4. Burt is exhibiting work at the Ro2 Gallery in Dallas and Antler Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon. In August Burt was mentioned in HiFructose Magazine Blog for his contribution to a collaborative show with renowned illustrator Jon McNair.

Trudeau says his pen and ink drawings are influenced by Edward Gorey and R Crumb.

Accompanying the drawing session will be the sounds of local music artists Twang Darkly, says Katy Larsen. Their music will also be for sale at The Agora Borealis.

One more thing: you might plan to hit Agora Borealis on Lake St on your way to the Aseana Fest on Texas Ave. The Asian street food fest goes from 3 pm to 9 pm.
