The famed international auction house is the site for our Saturday sketch this week. You'll be surrounded by beautiful objects and interesting customers. The displays are on many floors and the collection of items to be auctioned always changes. There's always something fabulous to sketch at Sotheby’s. The staff at Sotheby's has always been warm and welcoming to urban sketching.
You will almost certainly see something that will get your creative juices going. By the way, if Joan Tavolott joins us, be sure to ask her about the time she sold her original art at Sotheby's. It’s one of my favorite art stories.
