December Sketch Group at Dixon Gallery and Gardens

Next sketch group Saturday, December 2 Dixon Gallery and Gardens (4339 Park Ave, Memphis, TN 38117) Meet inside at 10:00 AM. Only pencil and colored pencil can be used to sketch the interior! The weather might be nice enough to sketch in the gardens, too.
The Isabelle de Borchgrave exhibit Fashioning Art from Paper will be on display - historic fashions recreated using paper, which sounds really fun to sketch (see image below from the Dixon). And Justin Bowles' exhibit Boukay will be in the Wurtzburger Gallery.

Sketching at Whole Foods

We met last Saturday, July 8, at the Whole Foods in east Memphis for some air-conditioned sketching and had a great time! The folks at Whole Foods were welcoming, and customers stopped and talked to us. And there was so much to sketch, we barely scratched the surface. We're looking forward to going again!

NEXT SKETCH GROUP: Saturday, August 5, 10:00 AM at the Peabody Hotel. Meet in the lobby to get a good spot for sketching the 11:00 AM duck march. This will be our first visit since Jimmy Ogle was named Duckmaster!

Sketches from the Big River Crossing

Saturday, March 4, we sketched at the Big River Crossing, which is an amazing amenity here in Memphis - it's a pedestrian bridge spanning the Mississippi River, with views back to the downtown skyline and into Arkansas. And it is connected to an existing train bridge, which is also very sketchable. Can't wait to go back!
