Events

An important aspect of Girls Drawin Girls is our group art shows.  Part of our mission at Girls Drawin Girls is to bring exposure and experience to our members and art via the gallery world.

GDG hosts and organizes several pin-up art themed group shows throughout the year.  Since 2006, we have had many gallery shows in and around the Los Angeles area featuring a diverse selection of pin-up art from our members.  We have also shown at Galerie Arludik in Paris, France in May of 2013.

For each show, we actively promote and publicize the opening events via flyers, postcards, our website, Facebook, Twitter, area artists and event blogs, and our email list.  However, our membership and fan base reach across the country and even the world; our blog alone got over 13,000 visits in the month of January 2014!

Our audience demographic is very open; mainly those who appreciate and understand the art of pin-up.  We have a strong following within the entertainment community and with fans of the counter-culture or “low-brow/pop” art scene.  However, we have people from all walks of life at our shows and fans from every demographic.  Men and women alike appreciate what our group is about and our vision towards promoting women artists.

We provide a full art show gallery experience at our openings, usually offering artist signings, light appetizers and drinks, and extra entertainment, such as DJs, raffles and live figure models. This helps create the art show reception into a fun, social event that helps sell our group and our art!
