go back to Events

The opening event took place on November 14. On Saturday, November 22, Frank offered a lecture at our Gallery called Viewpoints for Design - Image Making for Architecture. He described his client's directives and changing input for creating selected views of proposed buildings. Using his exhibited works, he explained the determinant factors influencing the development of his illustrations. He also presented an in-depth power point review of his process, from initial sketch to finish work, demonstrating numerous visual judgments and decisions entailed in his image-making profession. The two-part presentation, including interim dialogue & questions with guests, entailed about one and half hours.
