The Figurative Collective is a group of artists who meet to draw, as their title suggests, the human figure. Two of the artists, PONDELL (Corrine Holt) and n d hazlett (Deborah Hazlett), are displaying some of their work from the studio sessions. Besides working in the same location, they are also bound by the emotions their works express. “The way I figure it,” hazlett says, “being an artist is a way of experiencing, then creating, then sharing. All these experiences have brought me pleasure, and I try to let others see what I see, feel just a bit of what I feel.” PONDELL agrees, saying, “It is important to be able to render a pose with correct proportion, but also be able to bring a certain feeling or mood into the pose.” —Jo Anne Triplett
