Leah Garnett at Nocturne Halifax

Nocturne Halifax will be bringing art and energy to the streets of Halifax from 6pm to midnight on Saturday, October 18, 2014.

Drawing on Air is a radio broadcast project Leah Garnett began in 2002.  In each broadcast, she provides listeners with directions for making a drawing.  For Nocturne, Garnett will read short stories throughout the evening and invite listeners to draw while she reads.  She will read from a live location where drawing stations will be set up for visitors to walk in, listen to a story, and draw.  Listeners may leave their drawings behind to create an impromptu gallery exhibition.  The broadcast will also be streamed live so that Nocturne visitors may listen and draw from any location.  Garnett will read a selection of stories that address the idea of the “periphery” in response to this year’s curatorial theme, Peripheral Visions, Art from the Outside In.
