Thanks to Amelia’s Magazine for this write up…
“Drawing Crowds is an exciting new drawing exhibition that has been curated by artists Eleanor Bedlow and Carne Griffiths (a contributor to Amelia’s Magazine). An open brief called for submissions that tackled exploratory drawing – from automatic processes to expressionist mark making – around the theme of a journey. The results are being shown in a newly established gallery, The Stone Space, in Leytonstone, East London. If you liked the Jerwood Drawing Prize this should be right up your street!
25 artists were chosen to display physical work in the gallery, and include Amanda Lawson, Asa Medhurst, Asmi Kazmi, Carla Wright, Chetan Kumar, Claire Meharg, Cos Ahmet, Dan Neamu, David Farnham, David Harker, Debbie Locke, Edward Jeavons, Fuad Ali, Gillian Swan, Heenam Kim, Jane Rutterford, Jen Leonard, Jillian Knipe, Joanne Tidey, Julie Caves, Mary McFerran, Morgan Tipping, Nic Boin Nic Blair and Patricia Rozental. In addition to the selected physical works a collection of all submitted drawings is being shown on an online gallery. Follow Drawing Crowds on twitter too @DrawingCrowds“
