Exhibition with Sarawak Heritage Society

After a small preview show by Sarawak Heritage Society (SHS) in June of this year, we finally set up the full exhibition at the end of November; with 20 over sketches by our urbansketchers completed over various sketchcrawls.  Gabrielle, Aurelia, Jee, Min, Helena and myself were there for the set up.  It was a very new experience for most of us, because we had never hosted an exhibition of this scale before (except Gabrielle).  Nonetheless, teamwork made all possible.  Here are some photos taken by Jee, of setup day.
We showcased our sketching tools and sketchbooks, to show what urbansketchers usually work with.  Most of the time, non-sketchers will assume that they need very elaborate artist-grade materials.  This is to share that even the most basic ball-point pen can be used.  Min even showed his soy sauce painting, complete with a splash of the 'material' in a sauce dish.  We also included 2 panels explaining the Urban Sketcher's Manifesto and the About column.

The exhibition hall came alive on 21st Nov 2014, abuzz SHS's committee members and invited guests.  The Chief Minister of Sarawak's wife, was our Guest of Honour, declaring the exhibition opened to the public on 24th till 28th November 2014.
