Melbourne Urban Sketchers participated in Art Town on 29 March 2014. It was a fun experience to draw and capture the precinct. Besides Melbourne USKers, there were artists working in various media, including photography, oils, installation and sculpture. We had various sketching sessions – along the footpath, at coffee/lunch and at a railway station.
We had an awesome collection of work at the end of the day, which the artists could submit to an exhibition.
Melbourne USkers are modest – only 10 works were submitted, and they all looked amazing on the walls of Chapel Off Chapel Gallery.
A few of us went to the opening of the exhibition. It was an enjoyable evening – a celebration of our efforts and times spent drawing. Congratulations on work well done.
A few works were sold on opening night – the bottom left piece is mine, which was purchased by a local resident.
