Sketch That is a group of professional and non-professional artists, photographers and makers based in West Yorkshire, and we meet up once a month to make art/sketch/paint at different locations around the area. Founded by myself, and Angela Diplock, we’ve been meeting for over a year so far, and are about to hold our first group show.
The Group Show by Sketch That takes place in the Ridge Room at Heart (Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre), Bennet Road, Leeds LS6 3HN, from October 29th to December 31st, 2014.
Here’s an event listing on Leeds Inspired.
All are welcome to the opening party on Saturday November 8th, 12:00 – 14:00, where artists from Sketch That will be available to chat, and free refreshments will be on offer.
The artists taking part are:
Kat Archibald, Amy Baxter, Ian Cockburn, Angela Diplock, Helen Dryden, Caroline Dudley, Cy Dudley, Geraldine M. Greenwood, Vanessa Guy, Jon Hinds, Daniel Hesketh, Paul Marcroft, Sally Mastronardi, Fred Pepper, Joe Redhead, Rejectamental, Joe Teanby, and Carrianne Vivianette.
The art on show is an eclectic mix of painting, drawing, ipad art, models, assemblage, and prints. All the artists have different styles and approaches to art making. Together we represent a democratic art group, where each member has an equally respected artistic voice, whether they are a professional artist or non professional amateur. We aim to support each other and share skills and advice through our facebook group, and to explore our local area through our monthly sketching meets.
If you are an artist who is interested in joining Sketch That, please send a request via our facebook page. We’re looking for people who will enjoy meeting up to draw/photograph/etc. in the West Yorkshire/Leeds area, and who would like to be part of our online community.
