Amazing night at GR2 and tons of folks checked out over 550 drawings by 85 artists. It's hard to explain how it felt, but there is a video that shows a sea of folks cruising in and out that didn't seem to end. The works vary from true sketchbook cut-outs to serious drawings. Part of the thought process behind the exhibition is to let artists decide what is their Rakugaki, which means doodle, sketch, and or drawing. See Rakugaki at GR2 See the photo set on flickr!

On Saturday August 29th, the In Box Exhibition curated by Audrey Kawasaki took place at GR2. As you'd expect, it was packed all night on a warm evening. At the 11th hour, each box came in and easily went on the wall thanks to the deftly made boxes by Audrey Kawasaki's husband, Rob! Here's a link to the rest of the photos from In Box.
