I attended the opening event. From the website: “MOHAI’s exhibition, Drawn to Seattle: The Work of Seattle Sketcher Gabriel Campanario, featuring sketches from the award-winning Seattle Times blog and weekly column, “Seattle Sketcher.”
Gabi gave a brief talk and then led tours of the exhibit.I sketched him during the talk:
The big toe from the “Toe Truck” is in the foreground. The projection screen is a bit of photo collage
There were several Seattle Urban Sketchers sketching around the museum during the event.
I’d seen a few photos from the exhibit. But I wasn’t prepared for how huge it is. There are at least a couple hundred drawings spanning quite a few room sized spaces. There are two cases of sketchbooks from other Seattle Urban Sketchers.
I’m going to join the Museum just so I can go back a few times. I’m already scheduled for a couple sketching events there. The Seattle Urban Sketchers will be there for our regluar monthly sketch outing together on the 19th. I am scheduled to do one of the “Urban Sketchers in Residence” on 25 January.
All the photos from the event are here.
