Pop-up Salon: Showing our sketches from zipcode 94109

  • Jun 8, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please read through the whole description for this meetup: the two-part setup is a little different from what we usually do.

12:00 pm: Sketching in 94109 zipcode before the show
We'll start off sketching at noon, doing some 94109 sketches at the top of the curves on Lombard Street, where it meets Hyde. (This area can get a bit crowded, so lets meet on the steps on the right side of Lombard, about 20 steps down from the top. Look for people with sketchbooks.) Then we'll work our way back to the gallery for the reception at 3:00 pm. Walking back along Hyde, there are some great views looking down on the city, framed by buildings.

If you don't want to walk the 10 blocks back, you can take the #19 Polk bus or the #49 Van Ness.

If you can't make it to Lombard Street for sketching, you can just show up at the gallery at 3:00 and bring whatever sketches you've done previously in the zipcode area.

3:00 pm: Reception at Studio Gallery

Alongside their 94109 Paintout, the Studio Gallery at 1815 Polk Street (corner of Washington) is hosting a reception and pop-up salon for our group. At 3:00 pm we'll gather at the gallery, spread out the sketches that we've done in the 94109 zipcode on their tables and toast each other with bubbly water. While there we can take a look at the juried work on the gallery walls, all done in the same zipcode over the previous week.

This is also a chance to invite your friends and family to see what you've been up to and celebrate your growth as an artist.

You may already have some 94109 sketches!

If you've been to any of the meetups listed below you'll already have sketches from this zip code:

Sketches can be buildings, street scenes, views, people, just need to have had your feet planted in this zipcode zone when making the sketch. (See a map of the zipcode here.) The sketches don't have to be professional-level art or even especially "good"; like all of our meetups, we're putting together our own group story about a particular time and place.

Tips for setting up your display:

- Put your name somewhere on all your sketches or sketchbooks

- Try to fit the date and location somewhere on the sketch

- If you don't want to take the sketches out of the sketchbooks, figure out some way to mark the 94109 ones so people can find them easily (like post-it notes, bookmarks, pieces of string, can be creative here)
