Sayre artist sketchbooks a resource for CAM exhibition

Notebooks are a window into the soul. As Joan Didion wrote in Slouching Towards Bethlehem,  “...the point of keeping a notebook has never been, nor is it now, to have an accurate factual record of what I have been doing or thinking. That would be a different impulse entirely, an instinct for reality which I sometimes envy but do not possess. How it felt to me: That is getting closer to the truth of a notebook.”

Artist Thomas Sayre has collected dozens of sketchbooks over more than four decades as a working sculptor and now painter. Details from his sketchbooks—such as this 2014 drawing—will be featured in the upcoming White Gold print publication.
