Glamour Comes to the Windup
On Monday night, September 14, 2015, I saw a true Burlesque artist, Nona Narcisse, at the Windup Space at 12 W. North Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland 21201.
She is a beautiful woman with a beautiful personality to match. This live model was so creative in her poses and dance routine for her audience who came to draw her and to be in her presence. The music played was deep and soulful. It reminded me of Annie Lenox’s version of “I put a spell on you” at the start of the movie, 50 Shades of Grey. I would love to have a CD of their music to play as a stress reliever.
At the Windup, Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art Club was held by emcees Alexis de la Rosa and Aaron Bush who announced breaks and costume changes. I met some nice laid-back people in a nice crowd of old and young, artists and non-artists who wanted to draw. Some of the people were like me and hadn’t drawn anything in years.
Bring you own food, but please purchase your drinks there. It would be worth your while to have a relaxing evening of drawing without the pressures of life and the kids. While you are there, look at the beautiful photographs on the wall.
The drawing sessions are held the second Monday evening of each month. The next scheduled model is Valeria Vox who will appear on Monday, October 12, 2015. Check the website, http://www.drsketchysbaltimore.com. The hours are 7-10 p.m., and the doors open at 6 p.m. Parking meters are not in effect after 6 p.m. Admission is $10 online and $12 at the door.
