'First' An exhibition of Drawing

This week I am taking part in a new exhibition by a group of like minded people. Together we are called Out/Lines. We are a group of artists for whom drawing is a central concern of their practice. Affiliated to the Advanced Centre in Drawing (ACiD) at the University of the West of England, Out/Lines is an opportunity for post graduate students and alumni to exchange ideas, and to explore concepts and processes.
We got together in Cheddar on Thursday and hung our 'first' exhibit in a beautiful converted barn and studio gallery kindly lent by Sara Parsons.

The exhibition will take place between 2nd and 8th September 2011, 1-5pm.
The address, should you wish to come and visit, is:
Chestnut Farm Studio, Kent St, Cheddar, BS27 3LG

My piece - 'Kefalonia' hanging by the door.
The tall space made it ideal to show drawing on a large scale

 It was lovely to be involved in something different. Please go to for more informtion about the images displayed here.

I will be showing 4 of my pieces at the Minchinhampton Art Exhibition as part of Minchinhampton Country Fayre this weekend 10th and 11th September. The Fayre promises to be a full and busy weekend and the Art Exhibition includes only invited artists from the Cotswolds. It will be good fun if you can make it.

I would love to see this exhibition Wendy but I am not heading your way on the right dates. What a shame as I would so love to see the Kefalonia work in reality. Some of your fellow exhibitors look like such accomplished drawers. Do you think the skill in drawing is inbred or comes with practice? I know people say that regular drawing improves technique but I'm not sure there isn't some other magic required as well. Best wishes for the exhibition to all concerned.
