Dulwich Art Group Exhibition

8th May 2012

Hair Study

So, to get myself drawing more regularly (and dust off those old skills!) I got back into life drawing by attending sessions with the Dulwich Art Group, and I’ve found it hugely enjoyable and rewarding. “That’s nice, Steve”. Anyway…

Shameless plug!

As part of the Dulwich Artists’ Open House Event we’re having an exhibition where a bunch of us are displaying some of our work. I’m showing two ink drawings taken from the same pose; a neck/hair study (shown here) and a full body drawing. I think there are going to be about a hundred pictures on display from about 30 of us, so there’ll be more than just my scrawls to gawp at!

The show is on for two consecutive weekends: 12th–13th May and 19th–20th May from 11:00 to 18:00 at The Sea Scout Hut, Green Dale, Dulwich, SE22 8TX. It’s next to a girls’ school about 20–30 minute walk from East Dulwich station. Here’s a map. I’ll be there myself for a couple of hours on three of the days doing my bit. Oh, and it is of course free!

There’s also a private view on the 12th from 18:00–21:00 where there should be nibbles and drinks. I won’t be there as I’ve an important birthday to attend, but everyone is really nice so don’t be scared!
