Wichita, Kansas, USA [RESULTS]

Postby CrowTalk » Sun Jan 22, 2012 11:57 pm

Wichita area sketchers--and one sketcher who traveled several hours from Tonganoxie, Kansas, to draw with us--met at Bluebird Arthouse. Bluebird Arthouse is a wonderful, independent artist supply store that opened last year. The new store is located in an historic part of Wichita called Delano. In the 1870s, real cowboys roamed the streets of Delano and the area had a reputation for rowdiness. Present-day Delano offered interesting subjects for sketchers.

Bluebird Arthouse has big. clear windows that allowed us to sketch the scene across the street where you can find a bakery cafe, an antique store, a pool hall, and a tattoo parlor.

Of course, the art supplies in Bluebird Arthouse are very enticing to purchase or to sketch.

Bluebird Arthouse has a lounge where artists can relax, view works on display in the mini gallery, or even sketch.

Nice to see old and new friends at the Wichita sketchcrawl. We are very grateful to Bluebird Arthouse for welcoming us, and we look forward to visiting Bertie, the shop cat, again soon.

Beautiful views from your town and very ambitious sketches. Love your individual styles and use of different media.
And give Bertie a hug next time you visit the shop.
Thanks for sharing your photos and sketches.

Thank you for the kind comments M9fred, BH Yoo, Joan T, and Artlike (Ed). Looking forward to seeing all of you in cyberspace at the next sketchcrawl!
M9fred, I like to think we made Bertie a world-famous cat. She's a very wonderful creature.
Artlike, I saw the fine results from Joan T, BH Yoo, and M9fred. Did you participate in a sketchcrawl? I'll look for your sketches if you did.
Best wishes to all of you. Mary (CrowTalk) :wave:
