DRAWN, a solo exhibition by Anita Taylor at The Customs House Gallery in South Shields

We have been quiet on the home front at Drawing Projects UK this summer, here's why! 

Anita Taylor has been busy with DRAWN, a solo show, which is now open at The Customs House Gallery in South Shields. On until 12 November 2017, the exhibition focusses on the role of drawing within her practice, and has been curated by Esen Kaya of The Customs House Gallery in association with the DRAWING programme across a range of venues in the North East of England.

DRAWN provides the opportunity to view the range of Anita Taylor’s drawing practice and includes over 40 drawings, from a key drawing, Seeing Something Else [1993], through to the new Witness series [2017]. This exhibition is presented in two parts: with her ink drawings exhibited in the Upper Fusion Space and an extended series of monumental charcoal self-portrait drawings presented in the main Gallery. The exhibition is accompanied by a film made in her studio by Robin Fearon and a publication on the drawings will also be launched during the exhibition with an essay by Dr. Charlotte Mullins. The exhibition was listed in the a-n #211 The week's top exhibitions to see and featured in an interview with Anita Taylor for Aesthetica magazine.

We hope that some of you may be able to see the exhibition in South Shields - it is open from Monday-Saturday 10am-8pm and on Sundays from 11am-8pm with free entry.  There is an associated education programme. The publication DRAWN will be available from Drawing Projects UK in due course. 

This solo exhibition has been supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and is also supported by Bath School of Art & Design at Bath Spa University.
