These drawings come from a week of drawing walks I took last September, they were made for an exhibition at Gallery 127 on Lewes High Street, one of a series of shows organised by the Nu Artists group for Artwave. I worked in a different part of Lewes each day on A5 paper and hung all the drawings in the gallery, building up a record of the walks and eventually filling a wall of the gallery. Lucy Newman & Sara Grisewood were the other artists in the show.
This set of drawings were made on a Newhaven pub crawl. The pub theme came about as Newhaven Open Call will be upstairs at the Ship Hotel on Newhaven High Street. Here are some of the drawings that I’ll be submitting for the show; made on visits to The Hope Inn, The Prince of Wales, The Jolly Boatman and the White Hart. The show will run over the weekend 0f 24th, 25th, 26th August and the weekend of 31st and 1st September. The Preview will be on Friday 24th 4-6pm.
I thought I’d mark the sad closing of the Grosvenor in Stockwell by posting a few drawings that I made there.
It’s a great old London pub of the kind that are getting rarer these days, I went there mainly for Club Integral, which was held in the back room and will have its final night there on Friday the 18th July.
I draw mostly during the breaks between artists at Club Integral. So, images of an empty stage; but for the gear set up to be played, and the audience/ artists having a drink and a natter during the break.
