A SKETCHBOOK(ED) LIFE | SIDESTREET ARTS (VIRTUAL: ZOOM)

Ever wonder what goes on in an artist’s sketchbook? This month’s featured show will give you a look inside Sidestreeter, Bridgett Spicer’s sketchbooks (and brain). Browse selected art journals from over 30 years of sketchbooking. View artwork which started from journal drawings and enjoy new art inspired by old sketches. You don’t want to miss an inside look at an artistic life captured on paper. There’ll be a few spooks around as well. It IS October, after all.
