London Urban Sketchers 2015 Exhibition + sketchcrawl

In November this year, London Urban Sketchers will be having an exhibition of sketches of London in the third - and brand new - Timberyard in London - and will also have an extra sketchcrawl associated with the opening of the new exhibition.

The Exhibition

Our aim with this exhibition is to include sketches from as many people as possible who have been active within the Group up until now. That means:
  • came to sketchcrawls
  • posted sketches on Facebook
  • posted sketches in the Flickr Group Pool
  • generally supported the group in terms of making things happen
Tomorrow we will publish the detailed Call for Entries from active members of London Urban Sketchers and detail how the process will work.  So make sure your Flickr account is up to date with all your best sketches!
    This is the wall we will aim to cover with sketches. We're finding out in the next few days how much space we have now the fittings are being installed into this new space.

    The exhibition wall - Evelyn is in there for a bit of scale!
    We'll be having a Preview Party - probably on 3rd November - and hope that you can all come to that. We'll be confirming the date nearer the time.

    The new venue is located at 4 Noel Street so we had a think about what's close and worth sketching....

    An Extra Sketchcrawl

    ...and have arranged a special sketchcrawl associated with the exhibition - starting and and finishing at Timberyard - on Saturday 14th November.  We think we'll make this one a shorter sketchcrawl than usual and will start at 11am and finish at 2pm - but of course you can start even earlier and finish later if you want. So put that in your diaries.

    Carnaby Street and Liberty's - in Great Marlborough Street
    It is an iconic building, a jewel of Art Deco design, celebrated on its opening as ‘the new Tower of London’ (The Architectural Review) commenting on Liberty's
    We've got two sets of buildings right next door to one another which we suggest you might want to have a go at will include:
    • the magnificent mock-Tudor building (built in 1924) which houses the department store Liberty's on Great Marlborough Street - which faces....
    • the stage door to The London Palladium Theatre which you can find on Argyll Street - which also faces Liberty's

    A short walk north of Oxford Street you can find an odd pair of buildings right next door to one another

    So we hope you like the idea of the exhibition and a sketchcrawl - and we'll fill you in on more details about the exhibition tomorrow.
