From page A7 | February 22, 2012 |

Local artist Pete Scully will be at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St., in downtown Davis at 7:30 p.m. Friday to discuss his involvement in the new book “The Art of Urban Sketching: Drawing on Location Around the World.”

“The Art of Urban Sketching” is both a comprehensive guide and a showcase of location drawings by artists around the world who draw the cities where they live and travel. Scully’s sketches are included.

Authored by the founder of the nonprofit organization Urban Sketchers, this 320-page volume explains urban sketching within the context of a long historical tradition and how it is being practiced today.

With profiles of leading practitioners, and discussions of the benefits of working in this art form, this book shows how one can participate and experience this creative outlet through modern-day social networks and online activity.

Readers will find more than 600 contemporary illustrations, as well as artists’ profiles and extended captions where these urban sketchers share their stories, how they work, sketching tips and the tools behind each drawing.

With sketches and observations from more than 50 cities in more than 30 countries, “The Art of Urban Sketching” offers a visually arresting, storytelling take on urban life from different cultures and artistic styles, as well as insight into various drawing techniques and mediums.

Scully, originally from London, has been the official Davis correspondent for Urban Sketchers since 2008. His work has been featured at the Stephens Branch Library in Davis and he recently had his first solo exhibition at the Pence Gallery. Scully organizes a monthly SketchCrawl around Davis.
