Last October, we invited artists to express their sense of community, whether a literal community of neighbors and friends, or a huge sense of mankind, or a more abstract community—that of creativity, of art itself. The response is stunning—thank you to everyone who submitted work, and to the artists represented here who shared their work with us. We celebrate all of these artists who are celebrating community in their own ways, and each week we will share one artist with you.

Rita Foster | Drawing

 Rita Foster has spent the last decade producing drawings in the medium of charcoal pencil on toned paper surfaces with an emphasis on musculature and portraits. What sets her work apart from others is her line work—it has been said that the figures almost appear as though they have been wrapped in gauze. Rita’s publications include The Art of Man Edition 17, Drawing and Sketching Secrets Readers Digest, and The Art Model’s Handbook. To view more of her work please visit her blog where her most recent pieces are posted for sale. She accepts commissions. RitaFoster.BlogSpot.Com
