Ten New Orleans based artists hold monthly meetings in which they gather reference material for a portrait over drinks and friendship. At each meeting a different member of the group is photographed or sketched at his/her house. At the following meeting each member brings their finished portrait(s) and the process has continued until all ten members have had their likeness painted. Painters Painting Painters aims to create a dialogue about painting, artistic process, and most importantly, community.
