Weekday Sketchers Visit a Private Library


In a city with arguable the most celebrated library system, New Yorkers still think it is not enough.  Come with us this week as we visit one of the private libraries in the city: The New York Society Library. Opened in 1754, the library is housed in a beautiful townhouse on 79th St.  While most of the building is closed to the public, we will have the opportunity to tour the building, see the current exhibit  "The Book Beautiful: Margaret Armstrong and Her Bindings" and then sketch the public rooms, arched stairwell and upper galleries.  

For more about the library, click here: https://www.nysoclib.org

You may bring a stool but please work in "non-spillable" media.  There is no food allowed in the building.  Following our drawing session we will gather for a throw-down then have lunch outside the building.  You may return to the building to continue drawing or relocate to another venue.


Please RSVP directly to Raylie Dunkel at raylie@verizon.net.  Looking for us? Call/text Raylie at 201-978-6387
