DRAWING STRENGTH: the sketchbook component

Non-portrait Sketchbook (detail 1)

Previewed above and below is my diminutive concertina sketchbook, delivered this very day to the Barn Gallery at Montsalvat Arts Centre in anticipation of DRAWING STRENGTH, a drawing-centred exhibition curated by Jo Lane.

Non-portrait sketchbook 1 (detail 2)

Here is the book in its entirety:

Non-portrait sketchbook 1, 2018, 15 x 10 cm (closed); 15 x 78 cm (open), ink, gouache and watercolour on rag paper 

That’s Shane Jones below, dropping off his drawing and sketchbook. From the work we saw today, it’s clear that drawing, in all its guises, is very much alive and kicking.

DRAWING STRENGTH opens this coming Saturday, November 17 and runs until Sunday, January 6, 2019.
