Field Sketching with Sherrie York

July 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

Monday and Tuesday, June 29 and 30, and Tuesday, July 7

Field sketching is a valuable tool for gardeners, journalers, artists, scientists—anyone who wants to know more about the world around them. And in our fast-paced, phone-camera-clicking, social-media-sharing world, a handwritten and illustrated journal can help us to slow down, reflect, and experience the world in a more personal and intimate way.

Observation is the core of instructor Sherrie York’s work, whether she is making a watercolor sketch of tidbits collected on a neighborhood hike or carving a complex linocut block of pinecones and leaf litter. A self-taught printmaker and compulsive wanderer of landscapes, Sherrie always has a sketchbook or journal close at hand, frequently one that she herself made. Her work has been presented in national and international exhibitions and is represented in corporate and museum collections across the United States. See examples of her work at sherrieyork.com.
