100th Sketch Tuesdays “THE HUNDO”
Founded May 16th, 2006
We’ve been lucky to have a VERY gracious host, 111 Minna Gallery, for Sketch Tuesdays. Not only was the idea born here by my friend Sacha Eckes, but 111 Minna has fostered it throughout the years, literally without question, and some times, with little return on money. Some were killer; some were not. But here we are at 100, which is kinda unbelievable to me. I either feel one of two ways about hosting this thing for so long: 1. I was given a good opportunity, or, 2. I’m a robot/worker dude who just wakes up and does the event again and again and again…
Recently I’ve come to realize something else though: I’m proud of Sketch Tuesdays.
The fact that we have held 100 monthly events? That’s rad. More especially rad is all the connections people had sitting next to each other. That’s been my favorite part of the whole thing! A guy who used to write for the Bay Guardian (RIP) said “you get get a room full of artists together and its never going to be boring.” – Which is the truth.
Sketch Tuesdays could be viewed as a bohemian art fair, I get that. It is.
I just have loved the intimacy and fostering, hosting and helping artists to have a nice time at Sketch Tuesdays, in our little corner of the world. ~ Thanks to all, BKA
Sketch Tuesdays was founded at 111 Minna in 2006 by Sacha Eckes, an artist and curator who has deep roots in San Francisco and Belgium. Based on the once a year fundraiser titled Monster Drawing Rally at Southern Exposure, and due to the success of that, Sacha thought “Why once a year?” and Sketch Tuesdays was born as a monthly event at 111 (with full appreciation of SoEx). Sacha moved back to Belgium and gave the event to her friend Brad K. Alder.
