An exhibition of recent publications by University of Worcester Illustration staff
28th March to 26th of April
Hive Library Worcester
The work of four artists currently teaching illustration at the University of Worcester will be shown in a public exhibition at the Hive Library in Worcester.
The exhibition consists of work by Piet Grobler, Daisy Hirst, Becky Palmer and Stephen Fowler taken from recently published picturebooks, comics and a visual guide to rubber stamping.
Alongside images from these books, the exhibition also includes sketchbooks, dummies, tools and materials that were instrumental to the making of these illustrations, a rare opportunity to see the developmental stages of a book and its artwork before they are finally printed and bound.
The exhibition will open with a public event at the Hive on the 28th of March from 5.30pm to 8pm. At 6pm, the artists will give a talk about the pictures exhibited, the books they are taken from and the process of making them, with an introduction from acclaimed picturebook maker Petr Horáček.
The talk will be followed by a drinks reception and book-signing in the Hive Café. All welcome.
