Urban Sketchers: We Show the World, One Drawing at a Time

“We Show the World, One Drawing at a Time,” is the motto of the world-wide nonprofit organization Urban Sketchers. For more than a decade, members of the Boston chapter have met for a couple hours each weekend at a predetermined location to draw the urban landscape. It might be a park, a neighborhood or (in case of foul weather) within a museum or public space. Some focus on the architecture, others the busy street life, yet another draws a solitary pigeon. All skill sets, and media are welcome. This exhibition features a broad range of work by members of the Boston Chapter.

Exhibition organizer Pier Gustafson says, “This is one of the few ‘analog”; exhibitions of work by the urban sketchers. The group is quite democratic in its rules. Anyone can draw in any style as long as it “truthfully” represents what they see.” In that spirit, the show includes everything artists have submitted, and showcases the “collective” aspect of the group where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The volume and variety of work and the loosely themed display format offer something for everyone. Repeat visits encouraged!
