Summer brings the annual weekend exodus to Fire Island Pines, the iconic beach community that, for decades, has come to represent liberation and freedom for generations of men seeking a release from the sweaty confines of New York City. Pines Nude Drawing, founded in 2011 by artist Carlos Pisco, is a casual drawing group established to evoke the community’s past as a haven for artists and intellectuals. Using a variety of mediums, including ink, acrylic, charcoal, and color pencil, the artists assemble each week to draw nude models, sometimes including friends and occasionally the curious onlooker. A key aspect of the group is its changing outdoor locations, which have included pool decks, a yacht, an elaborate English garden and secret corners deep inside the Meat Rack, the Pines’ infamous cruising ground. The artwork will be organized by location, allowing visitors to see different interpretations of the same scenes. Additionally, in the long hallway leading to the gallery, the Fire Island Pines Historical Preservation Society will display the past and present history of the Pines through photos and printed material. The participating artists include Grant Arnold Anderson, Rob Clarke, William Bil Donovan, Dan Evans, Anthony Gonzales, Richard des Jardins, John MacConnell, Robert de Michiell, Kenneth Nadel, Duane Neil, Carlos Pisco, Shungaboy, Ian Sklarsky, W. Douglas Topper, George Towne and Todd Yeager. Quotes from Artists: Sun, surf, and sand are the perfect backdrop to be with this talented group of artists and inspirational's paradise with a sketch pad. – William Bil Donovan It's not only great working outdoors but having passing observers sometimes become models can really add an impulsive, unpredictable dynamic to the sessions that I particularly enjoy – Todd Yeager High-resolution images are available for download at the link below: About Pines Nude Drawing Pines Nude Drawing is a group of artists that meets on summer weekends to draw male models, both in private and public settings, in Fire Island Pines.
