See Davis through Scully’s drawings

By From page A11 | December 22, 2011

The Pence Gallery is the venue for an array of illustrations of Davis by urban sketcher Pete Scully. Originally from London, Scully has focused his artistic talents on Davis for the past few years.

“Pete Scully: Sketch Artist,” on view through Dec. 30 at the Pence, is the result of his wanderings around the town, complete with pen and watercolors, trying to capture unusual views of both landmarks and lesser-known quirky sites.

In all, Scully’s detailed drawings show the diversity of our small town. As he states, “My inspiration comes from everyday urban details, from fire hydrants to telegraph poles to cracks in the pavement; everything is interesting if you take an interest in it.

“I draw to remember, because one day I might forget.”

The Pence Gallery is at 212 D St. in downtown Davis. For more information, call (530) 758-3370.
