And they're off!
With an opening at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York — Feb 19 - March 6 2011 —, 10,000 (28839 originally sent out) sketchbooks returned creatively filled and have taken to the road, for a five month tour around the USA.
During this period the sketchbooks will be exhibited, are on display, can be taken out and viewed in galleries and museums whilst touring through eight different states in the USA. Each sketchbook is themed and has been submitted by artists from over 94 different countries, of which I am one.
Catalogued and packed up the sketchbooks have left New York. First stop, Austin, Texas where they appeared at The Austin Museum of Art (12 March) and the 29th St Ballroom at Spider House (13 March). The following place at the end of the month will be (30 March - 2 April) in Portland ME at the Space Gallery.
So, if you happen to be in The States...why not go along and take a look? If you would like to see my submission, themed - 'Face in the Crowd' - look out for sketchbook #19274 (Yes, I know, needles and haystacks come to mind, but they are all well cataloged!). Full details of the tour can be found here
For a sneek peek of more of the pages of my sketchbook take a look here
As a taste of what's to come the '9 Women' series is included in my sketchbook. To see the ladies in reality come and see them face to face in the exhibition from 1 May - 31 July, in The Netherlands. Details to follow here (papiermaché - 9 Women).
