Urban Sketching in Albuquerque

I went sketching with the landscape architects in downtown Albuquerque on Saturday morning, April 27th, 2019.  The event was sponsored by ANOVA Furnishings (out of St Louis) and the ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects), and lead by a local, Ken RomigRoland Penttila gave us a historical tour of the buildings as we drew.

Inside the Hotel Andaluz in downtown Albuquerque, 
which was originally a Hilton hotel,
When Hilton married Zsa Zsa Gabor, 

We all met at Humble Coffee downtown at 9:30 AM
(in the old Sears Building, designed by John Gaw Meem)

Ken Romig giving us instructions on the corner of Central and 6th --
the only place where Route 66 intersects with Route 66 
(the original Route 66 intersecting with the old Route 66)

Roland Penttila (in hat)
gave us the history of the Kimo Theatre

The night before I went to the opening at Evoke Contemporary for the "Interlopers: 2019 Works on Paper" exhibition.  Bob Richardson's drawings were in the exhibit; Bob helps John Tollett run the Tuesday Night Drawing Group at Argos Gallery.

 Of course, I had to bomb Bob's opening, by hanging one of my bad drawings at the Evoke exhibition (there was a space for the public to draw and post their spontaneous drawings).

posted during the opening

Update (May 26):  Bob Richardson's drawings were reviewed in an article about the exhibition in THE Magazine of Santa Fe, by Sarah Bradley.

Scanned and flipped horizontally,
to arrive at this simulation of what it will look like
when printed
