‘Sketchbooks’ would have been our first self-curated exhibition since Louise Jones-Williams took over as our Director. Sketchbooks are multidisciplinary and can be physical or digital. They are an essential part of the creative process! We were very much looking forward to sharing an excellent and inspiring selection of artist sketchbooks with you from Keith Bayliss, Rachel Larkins, Rozanne Hawksley, Becky Adams and many more. Through our social media we have been sharing some of the work that would have been in our galleries, we are very grateful to all of the artists who have allowed us to go ahead with the show in this way.
Our ‘Sketchbooks’ exhibition will be rearranged and will be accompanied by a new project. We are inviting submissions from our wonderful community, to be part of a Community Sketchbook. Art has the ability to bring us together and act as an important tool for our wellbeing and we want to share our creativity and imagination in lockdown. The images we receive will be shared on social media and shown on screens as part of the exhibition next year.
