The Art of Urban Sketching - at Foyles in London

On Sunday, I shall be in Foyles Bookshop on the Charing Cross Road helping fellow members of Urban Sketchers London hang our exhibition of sketches of London in their Gallery.

I'll probably be posting photos of the hang and the exhibition on this blog next week!

The Art of Urban Sketching Exhibition is in The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, 113-119 Charing Cross Road. It is part of the Foyles Sketching the City Season and the Urban Sketchers London Events Programme relating to the launch the new Urban sketchers book. It comprises:
  • prints of book spreads from the Urban Sketchers book The Art of Urban Sketching
  • framed sketches by correspondents from London Urban Sketchers
The exhibition is free and is open from Monday 16th July until Sunday 22nd July. Opening hours are:
  • Monday - Saturday 9.30am - 5pm and 
  • Sunday 11.30am - 6pm.
  • However beware that the Gallery may be closed for special events so you need to ring to check if it's open if you're coming specially to see the exhibition.
We're not having a PV however I'd love to know if you visited and what you thought of the show.

Here's the announcement as part of the list of events in the Sketching in the City season.

  1. what a great show it will be, I love exhibitions of sketchbooks but they seem few and far between, is it just showing or are you selling too. Thats allways the tricky part as sketchbooks shouldnt be taken apart, prints perhaps would be an idea if you wanted to make sales.
    Anyway good luck and I am looking forward to seeing the pictures.

  2. doh! Just re read the post...you are selling prints!! In a rush to go to work, hence the haste!
