53rd World-Wide Sketchcrawl at Quincy's Porchfest

53rd WorldWide-Sketchcrawl at Quincy Florida's 5th Porchfest Music Festival October 22nd was generously sponsored by Quincy Mainstreet and the Gadsden Arts Center and Museum.

Special thanks to Joe Munroe and Dawn McMillan and their Quincy Mainstreet staff, volunteers and co-sponsors for organizing this event and providing advertising, food, and drinks to artists. This event hosted 20 bands on 11 porches in beautiful historic Quincy Florida!

Special thanks to Grace Robinson and her GAC staff for comfort station and exhibit space for artists!

Gadsden Arts Center [Munroe Community room in the Fletcher Annex (old café)] generously opened to sketchcrawlers as a relief station & lunch meeting place to see each other's sketches and check out the current exhibits [like "Out of Pocket" and "Arts in Gadsden"] (see links)

Look forward to our Gadsden Arts Center/Museum sketchcrawlers' exhibit in May 2017.
