50 sketchers from USK-Singapore group are currently exhibiting their sketches at the National Museum of Singapore. This is our very first public exhibition with the museum. We count it a privilege as one of the very few community group to be invited into the museum. Our little exhibition ties in with a current exhibition by pioneer Singaporean artists entitled 'A Changed World'. This weekend I will also be making a short presentation about UrbanSketchers and the free-hand sketching movement to the public.
Below are two of my own submission to show the ever changing landscape of Singapore. I hope it also shows you how diverse and multi-racial our urban Singapore is.
