This was an all day event for Urban Sketcher Tacoma. First, we had a sketch outing in and around the main library in Tacoma. I hung around the library and only went outside to do one sketch. This is a small gargoyle guarding the Clock Tower Square.
As usual, we met to share sketches and have a group photo.
Then we held the opening reception for our Tacoma Urban Sketchers show in the afternoon. There were 26 artists and 81 framed sketches! When I first walked through in the morning I was so impressed by how good it looked! There were a number of competing events around the region but we did get a steady stream of people dropping in to look around. Several seemed interested in joining us for sketch outings in the future.
My “Astronauts on the Town” project poster and a couple Museum of Flight magazine article featuring my sketches were in a case.
My group of sketches (we were allowed 3 each)
There are lots more photos of smaller groupings of the framed prints here:
