This is a call for participants. Sit for 15 minutes have your flower portrait drawn.

During the Exhibition -Wreath – Zachari Logan will be in the gallery from 12-5 Saturday and Sunday NEXT weekend the 19th and 20th November and would like 49 LGBTI people to come and sit for him, each holding a single flower.  Zachari will draw the flower as it is held by the sitter, as a portrait of the person holding it. The 49 drawings will then make a bouquet of 49 flowers in memorial to the people killed in the Orlando Massacre. These drawings will then be shown at New Art Projects and sold to benefit the families of the victims.
On June 25th 2016, Zachari Logan completed this drawing performance, in conjunction with Nuit Rose, Toronto’s Queer Arts Festival and his exhibition Forgotten Selves at Paul Petro Contemporary Art. Members of the public were invited to select a cut flower and sit with Zachari Logan for a fifteen-minute portrait-drawing session. Logan drew the flower as a portrait of the bearer. Logan’s goal to produce forty-nine drawings to commemorate the lives of those lost in the Orlando/ PULSE tragedy. These drawings were made available to the public for purchase with proceeds benefiting an Orlando charity. Zachari Logan will restage this performance.

Many thanks to those that took part.  The corresponding numbers are matched with a drawing of a flower that was made into the final wreath piece and is now on display in the gallery.
