ART FAIR 2019

Click here for more info: Call for Works: ‘Drawing’

This year the Art Fair returns to the splendid newly refurbished Music Hall. We have taken a larger stand for the’Drawing’ show.

We would like to present an eye catching stand with diverse works on paper. Submissions from members of AAS will on this occasion be guaranteed display if they are suitable for exhibition. Open submissions from outwith the Society will be subject to a selection process.

Further details will be posted on The AAS Website and social media: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

 

‘Drawing – considered as any kind of work on paper regardless of the technique – is the load bearing skeleton for much creative experimentation, a medium favoured by painters and sculptors that often represents the first visualisation of an idea. ‘ John Berger

‘Drawing is the root of everything and time spent on that is actually all profit. ‘ Vincent Van Gogh’

 

The drawing is closest to the idea.’ Maria Lessing

There will be a member’s prize of £150 regarding work that has been created for the event.

Three drawing prizes will be offered to graduates of Grays School of Art 2019.
