Urban Sketchers pop up exhibition at Thomas Dixon Centre

Artwork will be created in the lead up to the BOH weekend and it will be displayed in a pop up exhibition over the weekend in the Thomas Dixon Centre.

 

WHO ARE URBAN SKETCHERS?

Similar to Open House worldwide, Urban Sketchers is a global movement, now with 300 groups around the world. Urban sketching stems from the traditional practice of on-location drawing – through their sketches, they capture a view into the places they directly observe and share with others the scenes they witness.

Urban Sketchers Brisbane’s community of sketchers come together weekly, giving the community an opportunity to explore and document Brisbane together, building friendships and a new appreciation for the places around them.

They have once again come on board this year to participate in a number of sketching demonstrations at our Brisbane Open House hub at Thomas Dixon Centre.

At the conclusion of the sketch session, there will be an exhibition showcasing all of the artwork completed. This provides such a unique glimpse into the diversity of artistic styles and interpretations, demonstrating the versatility of urban sketching as an expressive medium.

The exhibition will be at the Thomas Dixon Centre.

We’re so excited to be partnering with them again to showcase the incredible work of the very talented Urban Sketchers, and to provide our visitors with an alternative perspective of the precinct’s remarkable buildings.
