Quite The Character
18th July – 29th August 2009
Preview Friday 17th July (6pm until 8pm)
An exhibition celebrating illustration and comic book art.
All too often illustration is taken for granted through our day-to-day interaction with printed and online materials. This Summer Mushroom Works is dedicating its gallery space to celebrating illustration, showcasing character based images from illustrators working across the UK. The show will feature, amongst others new work from several NE based illustrators and comic book artists including Carl Rosati, Jack Fellows, Richard Gore and Lucy Hammond as well as work by NE based illustrators’ group Set of Drawers.
Illustration is fast becoming a very trendy form of art. Whilst art is often for ‘art for art’s sake’, its (often overlooked) cousin, illustration is there to serve a purpose. Mushroom Works Gallery will showcase the work of artists and illustrators who bring pages to life though their use of lines, colour, text and imagination. Quite the Character will explore this art form, offering the audience a tour of the process from concept creation to the final reproduction of the image.
