Drawing Now

1st June - 30th July

Gallery 3 & 4

DRAWING IS ONE OF THE OLDEST FORMS OF HUMAN EXPRESSION.
This exhibition aims to look at the practice
of drawing across the spectrum, from a broad range of artists working at the present time within
this discipline, either solely or as part of their practice.

Some of the artists featured are Royal Academicians; some are young artists who have shown with the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition, others include illustrators, comic book artists and Gallery artists.

This is a stimulating and educational show that may just inspire you to pick up a pencil and start sketching.

To complement Drawing Now in the Stormomt Studio gallery our Permanent Collections curator Julian Day has selected etchings and drawings for an exhibition including the work of local artists Margaret Barnard, Edward Burra, Robert Austin, Raymond Harris Ching, Eric Gill and many more .... Running until 31 July.

Drawing Show Chimp

Selected Artists: Melanie Berman

2019 RA summer show exhibitor

Berman's fictional landscapes and scenes depict near recognisable objects and natural forms into lush paintings. Nature's biodiversity and the seasons can be encapsulated in movement or stillness suggesting the passing of time. The flatness of shapes and design reflect modern values and concerns that are present in our environments.

Findings.
A series natural of objects....mostly seaweed.....washed up on the seashore at Moeraki, South Island, New Zealand.
I am struck by the beauty and infinite variation of objects found in nature, and concerned for our ability to protect the natural environment.
As I say in the hand made book that accompanies this series....
“I​n nature nothing is ever the same......nor will it ever be”​
