… artwork for the stunning book …
A delightful exhibition to accompany the launch of this wonderful book, the rooms are full of Jackie‘s stunning artwork and Robert‘s delightful poems.
I particularly enjoyed seeing the full page “absence” watercolours – especially for conker – as their lyrical beauty is slightly muted in the finished book by the inclusion of the alphabet.
Compton Verney‘s curators have once again created an enchanting space for the art to shine with thoughtful backdrops of colour and illustration inspired by the art and the occasional school desk of bird books for children to browse.
The exhibition runs until 17 December 2017 (Tue – Fri 11am – 4pm; Weekends – 11am – 5pm) and is definitely worth a visit. If you haven’t been to Compton Verney before, I urge you to go. The exhibition space, permanent exhibitions and park are a delight and make a great day out for both art fiends, nature lovers and families. There’s a lovely cafe, an adventure playground for children, and boardwalks and pond dipping around the lake. Click here to be directed to their website.
