Sketch Book Project



If you happen to be in Winter Park, Florida tomorrow, you really should experience the Art House Co-op’s Sketchbook project exhibition. My book “It’s Reigning Cats and Dogs” will be available for checking out. If you can’t make that gig then you will have a chance to view this year’s tour at the Brooklyn Art Library in NYC, where the work becomes part of the permanent collection later this summer. My other book “For the Trees” is housed there also.

 

This year’s tour started in Brooklyn at the Brooklyn Art Library. It then traveled to The Austin Museum of Art in Austin, Texas, remaining in Austin, it was exhibited at The 29th St Ballroom at Spider House. Zigzagging across the county the exhibition opened in Portland, ME at the SPACE Gallery, then down to Atlanta, GA at the The Granite Room, up to Washington, DC at The Hillyer Art Space,then back over to NY in Rochester, at the Mercer Gallery at Monroe Community College. From there it sprung from the east coast to the west landing in Seattle, WA at the Form/Space Atelier and the meandering down  to San Francisco, CA, at the Madrone Studios. The Sketchbook collection  then skipped mid north to Chicago, IL, at the Hyde Park Art Center. The final stretch of the tour culminates tomorrow at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

Art House Coop is a started as a community based arts space out of Georgia. The brain child of Steve Peterman and Shane Zucker was conceived while they were still undergrads at the Atlanta College of Art. It has exploded into a national event with international participation. It is now housed permanently in the Williamsburg section of New York with the creation of the Brooklyn Art library, a library consisting of just sketchbooks from artists worldwide. Next year’s project will be going international. Break out the pencils or crayons and sign up! Maybe the Blue Horse Arts Studio will be on the schedule! We’re working on it!
