May 15 General Meeting - Voting and Presentation

May 15th meeting - vote for your officers  


Don't forget, at our May General Meeting we will be voting for our officers. If you are interested in serving, please contact any of our current officers for information. We'd especially like apprentices to assist current officers and to learn how our group operates, and assist as needed.
We also need several people to fill volunteer positions. Our priorities at this time are Newsletter Editor, Publicity Chair, and several Exhibit so-chairs to run our fall shows. The Newsletter Editor compiles information on speakers, shows, and workshops on a monthly basis, so we can post the newsletter online and mail it to the few members without internet access. Our Pubilcity Chair writes and submits press releases to print and internet media, and looks for ways to publicize our group and events. The Show Co-chairs, manage the  show process, from announcing the shows on the CaFe system, selecting jurors, notifying selections, hanging the exhibit, and managing the receptions.                              


May 15 General Meeting - Gabriel Campanario, Seattle Times Sketch Artist will give a presentation.


Gabriel Campanario is a Spanish-born journalist and illustrator best known for his award winning Seattle Times blog and weekly column, Seattle Sketcher.  Campanrio is also the founder of Urban Sketchers, an online community and non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the art of on-location drawing.


“The beauty of sketching is that, almost by definition, a sketch can be completed as simply and quickly as you like. It can involve making a fifteen-minute sketch of the view from your window or whipping out a collapsible sketching stool and spending an hour or two capturing the way the light hits that beautiful old church. In either case, sketching stops the clock and lets your mind turn off all the noise…it has the power to turn a moment of boredom into a creative pastime. In a sense, urban sketching can be more about the experience than the result…sketches bring back memories in a way photos don’t, evoking the sounds, smells, and recollections of the places in which you created them.”


Gabriel is the author of several books on urban sketching:

The Art of Urban Sketching

Architecture and Cityscapes

People and Motion
