Visitor JR said after her visit:
“Yesterday we visited the Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk to find that your latest exhibition of the World Illustration Awards 2016 was on; we were delighted as we’d seen last year’s exhibition there too & very much enjoyed it.
I think this year’s work even surpassed last year’s high standard! It is so interesting to see work from a wide range of categories, & I particularly like some of the very detailed perspective drawing. Things that stand out in my memory: I loved finding the 10 hidden keys; we were fascinated by the skilful use of digital imaging to show plants being used in medicine; The New York Times “cartoon” of Death overwhelming the Syrian refugees was haunting; the tale of the little mice and the fat cat with the stripey tale … I could go on!”
