Art Exhibition: Marking the Page
Opening on Friday 20 September in TheCurve
Seen by many as the starting point for an artist’s path to a finished work, drawing can also result in beautiful finished pieces that inspire and please as much as a painting. Edgar Degas considered drawing to be the artist’s most direct and spontaneous expression, revealing the artist’s true personality. This exhibition of drawn and sketched imagery by local artists – both amateur and professional – will feature framed and un-framed work as well as sketchbooks.
Open 10am-4pm on Friday 20, Saturday 21, Sunday 22, Wednesday 25, Friday 27, Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 September. Free entry
PS: If you would like to exhibit please send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a member of the library staff by Monday 16 September.
