The Sketchbook Project is a mobile library of handmade sketchbooks contributed to by thousands of creative people from across the globe. The Project encourages everyone — from anywhere — regardless of their creative background, to create and share their process with the public.
Participants sign up online (2013 registration now underway) to receive a blank sketchbook, then fill it with artwork and mail it back. The results are cataloged in the Brooklyn Art Library’s permanent collection, displayed online in the Digital Library, and exhibited at museums and arts festivals from coast to coast including right here at The Gladstone July 19th (opening reception), 6-10pm at the 2nd floor gallery. Demonstrating the power of collaboration: when 10,000 people get together with a common purpose, we can create something uniquely awesome, here’s a look at Anders K. Iden for The Sketchbook Project 2012. Theme: Heroes and Villains, titled Heroes and Villains. Location: Lawrence, KS.

Not Redrum–it’s the Red Room | 303 designed by RUCKUS (Kate Austin + Kristin Ledgett). Explore the luxury, glamor, drama, passion and heat of the colour red. Furnished in high-gloss lacquers and richly patterned silks the Red Room is a celebration of colour, pattern and texture.
This show was important to many of us growing up. Blue collar working class struggles, body diversity, angsty teenagers, lots of laughs, and a family that fought hard and loved harder. Many people still talk about it as their favorite show, including some of us. I think this calls for a Roseanne marathon.
