W.L.D.G. at the Crossroads

You all should be familiar with the Worcester Life Drawing Group (W.L.D.G.) by now. The W.L.D.G. workshops have provided a facility for local artists and students to practice figure drawing skills learned in school since the 1970's, when it started at the Grove Street Gallery. The Group has been hosted by the Worcester State College Art Dept. for the past ten years. Unfortunately, the art dept. is moving to the Craft Center and there is no room there for us (Boo hoo!).

I am telling you all this because, although we still have permission to use the studio at Worcester State College, the building it is in is scheduled to be demolished to make way for a new gym, we don't know when.

We are looking for a large room, preferably free, as we are totally non-profit, that we can use one evening a week to pose a model for our usually a dozen or so participants to draw. We are looking for suggestions from the Worcester art community. If you know of such a place, you can do a mitzva (good deed) by contacting Sid Solomon ( or Sam Lalos ( It would be a pity to see such a vital and active group fall by the wayside as so many arts organizations in Worcester do.

Thank you for your attention.
