Genius Loci: Experience the Soul of Place
Exhibit is open Tuesday through Friday 10 to 6 and Saturdays 10 to 5pm through May 22. Stop by during our gallery hours and be inspired!
Come find out why some people draw in a notebook on their travels instead of taking photos -- and how that changes their experience of the places they visit.
Please join us for this educational, fun, enlightening exhibit featuring MJ Williams, Nancy Owens and Gabe Shaughnessy showing their travel-sketch practices.

We believe anyone can benefit by learning to draw what they see and experience. Come find out why sketching on your travels is sometimes much more rewarding than taking snapshots. And gain some tips on how to get started.

Through their frequent travels to Europe, MJ and Nancy have filled dozens of sketchbooks and notebooks with lovely watercolors: scenes in Paris, Cairo, Rome. And with quirky sketches of characters they see in bars, cafes and jazz clubs. It's their beautiful way of keeping memories - and now we invite you to experience the sweetness.

Gabe Shaughnessy is a talented sketcher, illustrator, mural artist and bookmaker. He'll share his collection of drawing-filled handmade sketchbooks and journals, along with a digital sketchbook he has used in recent years.

Drop by and take a look *inside* the artists' sketchbooks and travel journals. We will also have some great portable art supplies, tools and sketchbooks for sale during the exhibit, all provided by Queen City Framers and Art Supplies.
