Weekday Sketchers Are Back with a Double Header!

It has been a long, long winter: cold, dark, snowy and no Urban Sketchers. But we have made it through the winter and the Omicron epidemic and now we are back to meeting and drawing together. 

We are starting up the Weekday group with two events this week!

One in Brooklyn and one in Westchester with the Westchester Group.

Wednesday: Brooklyn Museum

It is almost a shame that the Brooklyn Museum is in New York City where it is overshadowed by the Manhattan museums, because it is a world class museum all on its own. From the Rodin statues in the lobby to the Dutch homes on the top floor, this museum has so much to offer us: the world class Egyptian and Asian Collections, Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party, wonderful design and decorative arts and so much more. Then there are the special exhibits to wow us all over again. Join us for a day of exploring this treasure of New York.

DATE: Wednesday March 2, 2022

START TIME: 11:00 AM (the Museum opens at 11:00 AM)

LOCATION:  The Brooklyn Museum
                       200 Eastern Parkway

  • We will gather in the lobby at 11:00 AM. After a few minutes we will disburse to sketch at our leisure.

  • There is an admission charge of $10 for Seniors and $16 for “Juniors”. However there is a pay-what-you-wish policy. The American Alliance of Museum card is accepted. It is suggested that you purchase tickets in advance but there are tickets available at the door.

Thursday: Hudson River Museum

Cathy Gutterman has made arrangements for the Westchester Chapter to visit the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers. The Weekday Group is invited to join for a day of sketching at this wonderful gem of a museum just north of NYC. It is only a 30 minute ride on the Metro North Railroad’s Hudson Line out of Grand Central Terminal. There is also ample parking if you wish to drive. The current exhibition is “The World of Frieda” a collection of works about Frieda Kahlo. Additionally the museum houses an interesting permanent collection including Red Grooms’ “The Bookstore” and the historic Glenview Home. Weather permitting, there are good views of the Hudson River from the museum grounds.
