This Brickbottom Artists' Association Members' Exhibition highlights the artist's more intimate process, the preliminary spark that begins the journey to a final finished drawing, painting or sculpture, or the ideas that allow an artist to think and dream on the page. Sketchbooks record an artist's travels or the daily events in their lives. They can include life drawings, landscapes, portraits or mindless doodles. This exhibition shows artists' sketchbooks along with the finished work that sprung from their pages.

The small room of the Brickbottom Gallery showcases Brickbottom Artists who will be opening their studios throughout Somerville during Somerville Open Studios. Artists include: Lois Bennett, David Campbell, Patsea Cobb, Wally Gilbert, Pier Gustafson, Lana Hermann, Jerry Lainoff, Pauline Lim, Jessica Meuse, Diane Novetsky, Debra Olin, Alyson Schultz and Liz Whitbeck.

Extended gallery hours during Somerville Open Studios,

Saturday & Sunday, May 2 & 3, noon - 6pm.
