The Good Soul of Szechuan

Date: 
30 October 2009 - 28 November 2009

Sometimes the artwork about events draws me to it as much as the write up ,as is the case with the illustration for “The Good Soul of Szechuan” at the library Theatre in October. If you haven’t seen a performance at the theatre before I think you’ll be impressed, it’s not too big, so that you are able to engage well with the performance.

Our autumn exhibition plays homage to the late Ray Lowry who died a year ago on the 14th October

His work as a cartoonist was world renown having had work published in the likes of NME, private eye, the Guardian and many more.

His energetic ink sketches whilst on tour with the Clash are now collectors’ items and his fine art and abstract work has gained recognition in the art world.

Under the Volcano

Date: 
25 September 2009 - 22 November 2009

It is with great excitement that the gallery was invited to contribute pieces of Ray’s work into the Malcolm Lowry exhibition. Ray was obsessed by the book haven’t read it so many times it became a parallel to his own life and world and throughout the years his art work was directly influenced by the book and probably under the influence of alcohol. Before his death Ray’s once again revisited “Under the Volcano” and a set of emotional, scratchy images emerged. Well worth a visit. Thanks to Bryan Biggs at the Bluecoat for making it happen.
