Weekday Sketchers at the Shah Garg Collection Wednesday

NYC is full of surprises and this is one of them!


A few weeks ago Meryl Greenblatt went to see a pop-up gallery show in Chelsea and was so taken with the exhibit that she contacted the owners of this private collection to make arrangements for us to sketch there!  A great BIG THANK YOU to Meryl for making these arrangements. 

Join us this week as we go to view and sketch a remarkable collection of 80 works of art, that were made by women artists, from 1946 to the present.  The show contains paintings, ceramics, textiles and sculptures of all kinds of styles and media by well know and little known artists 

The owners of the collection Komal Shah and Guarav Garg mounted this show entitled "Making Their Mark" for a few weeks in Chelsea and are now inviting us in to sketch it. Sarah Daoui of the Shah Garg Foundation will be there to introduce us to the collection and provide an overview.
