Tacoma Urban Sketchers are mounting their second exhibit this year at the Foss Waterway Seaport. The exhibition runs through Jan. 7, 2019.

The theme of “Sketching Tacoma and Beyond” means that there will be pieces showing local waterways, other Tacoma sites and sites from around the region. Meet the artists at a reception on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 4-8 p.m. at Foss Waterway Seaport.

As long as they last, small sketch books will be given out to guests of the show. We encourage you to sketch while at the museum. Foss Waterway Seaport, 705 Dock St. Tacoma, is open from Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday, from noon-4 p.m. Go to http://fosswaterwayseaport.org/calendar to check for closures relating to special events.

Admission is free for Seaport members and children under 5 years old. Adults are $10 each. Show your AAA membership card and save $2 on admission prices. Children from 5 years old, students, military and seniors older than 62 years are $8 each. A family pass for up to two adults and four children is $25. Group tours of 10 or more are $8 for adults; $6 for children/students/military/seniors.

The Museums For All program offers $2 admission for two adults and up to four children. (EBT card must be presented.) Admission is free during the Third Thursday Art Walk on Oct. 18, Nov. 15 and Dec. 20.

Tacoma Urban Sketchers meets the first Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. at different locations for “sketch outs.” They usually have lunch together at a place named the morning of the sketching, so do plan to stay for lunch and visit with other sketchers.
