What Comes Out of Our Sketchbooks

February 4–March 20, 2021

JCAL is excited to partner with the Southeast Queens Artist Alliance to present Process → Project: What Comes Out of Our Sketchbooks, curated by Rejin Leys and Damali Abrams.

Sketchbooks provide a behind the scenes look at the artistic process. In their sketches, artists test out ideas, record observations, practice skills, and plan future projects. 


This exhibition will present sketches, both loose and bound, by working artists with diverse practices: writing, painting, drawing, photography, collage, assemblage, sculpture, and paper-making. The shared act of sketching unites them.
