SATURDAY: Double Header Weekend

Saturday Sketch BBG
Sunday Sketch NYSLO


Peak Weekend at BBG

The weather is finally with us and both weekend dates look great.  We have very interesting events planed for both days this weekend.  Details about the Sunday event will be sent in a second email.

 On Saturday we’ll be at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for what some believe is “the peak weekend” for the garden.  We will meet at the front gate at Eastern Parkway.  If you arrive late -  take the contact phone number so you can find us.

The Gardens are going to be filled with people on Saturday, including photography clubs, other artists, families and lovers.  We’re going to try to stay together as a group moving from one location to another.  You might want to bring your lunch, it will be a perfect day for picnicking.  There is food for sale too but the lines are often long on peak days.
