On Monday, April 15, 2013 the two coordinators of the MCBA Visual Journal Collective will talk about and share some of their travel journals. Roz Stendahl and Suzanne Hughes will each speak about 20 minutes about various aspects of travel journals, including tips for sketching in public and selecting a journal format that is easy to travel with. The meeting will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at MCBA and it is free and open to all adult journal keepers, regardless of ability.
Following the talk attendees will be encouraged to share pages spreads from their own travel journals.
Left: Journal cards from one of Roz Stendahl's travel journals. This journal includes sketches, rubbings, and collage. The double slip case was constructed upon return. Roz will talk about various tools and formats she finds useful when traveling with groups who aren't all sketching.
Roz will also have her copy of Danny Gregory's "An Illustrated Journey" on hand. This recently released book looks at the travel journals of 40 people including Roz Stendahl, Ken Avidor, and Roberta Avidor.
All this discussion is meant to gear you up (mentally and physically) for spring and summer travel (which many folks in Minnesota look forward to).
So please come along and join us for a fun evening of remembering trips taken and sights and sounds and sketches.
