The Artful Line exhibition opened at the Harris Museum & Gallery in Preston on 14th February this year, featuring drawings on loan from Courtauld’s alongside those commissioned from Preston artists Gavin Renshaw, Kathryn Poole (who have both previously exhibited at Oxheys) and Anita George. Oxheys’ artists Bernie Velvick and Robin Fanner delivered workshops to encourage exhibition visitors to try drawing using materials provided by the Harris. These proved popular and more activities were planned but sadly, due to lockdown, these had to be cancelled.
The Harris however were determined to ensure that activities continued, by providing a virtual tour of the exhibition and asked us to prepare some online drawing exercises which anyone can do in their own homes with whatever they can find to draw with and on. These have now been launched so catch the virtual tour, artworks and all three drawing presentations by Oxheys’ artist Bernie Velvick on the Harris’ website here.
We hope you enjoy them. Happy Drawing
