City Impression @ City Gallery Sketch 1000


Planning Department and City Gallery, in collaboration with Urban Sketchers Hong Kong, invite you to the "City Impression @ City Gallery Sketch 1000" , a thematic exhibition with workshops to guide you on a journey of discovery through pen and paper in our City Sketchbook. Rediscover landmarks and spot new gems within 1000 metres of City Gallery.

Hong Kong takes pride in its comprehensive town planning and infrastructure for shaping Asia's World City. A living project, created to showcase the unique achievements and visions of our city's planning and infrastructure projects, City Gallery is the starting point of our City Sketchbook journey through Central. Come and see what compels 35 sketchers to draw on location, using all kinds of media, telling visual stories and creating their very own personal City Impressions!

The exhibition period is from 15 October 2014 to 15 January 2015. A thematic seminar jointly presented by Planning Department and Urban Sketchers Hong Kong on the topic of 'Cityscape - The Art of Urban Planning' and 5 workshops conducted by experienced urban sketchers will be held during the exhibition period to share with you their creative process and how different media and sketching techniques can be used as a medium for expression to create beautiful collective memories of our cityscape. Come and share our unique visual journey and bring home with you our mini sketchbooks as souvenir while stock lasts.
