This week the selection panel met to chose the work for the show.  Artists, Nicky Hirst and Sarah Sparkes (Curator) and Lily Harris, Head of Development at Dulwich Picture Gallery were impressed by the quality of work submitted.  And they were enthusiastic about the theme in the context of a library.

Libraries are now under threat, so regular shows at Dulwich Library are especially timely.  The panel like the idea of accompanying text as they felt it further enhanced the connection between visual art and the written word.

We will be emailing out to you the flyer and private view invitation soon.  Please be sure to send it to all your contacts!

This is a special show!  It not only actively supports libraries under threat, it also coincides with the celebrations for the centenary of International Women’s Day by celebrating the wonderful and diverse talent of women artists in South London!

There will be tours on Wednesdays 2 and 16 March at 3.30pm which will include talks by some of the exhibiting artists, and also visits for schools each Tuesday and Wednesday  1.30- 3.30pm.

If you would like to participate contact Ilinca info@ilinca.co.uk,  Jackie jackiekbrown20a@gmail.com

Private View THURSDAY 3 March 8 – 10pm

27 February – 26 March 2011

Calling all South London Women Artists.

The education programme to coincide with the Women and Books exhibition at Dulwich Library is oversubscribed! We are in the unusual position of turning schools away or booking them in to workshops in November.

We desperately need artists to be involved in this. We will need 2 artists to deliver workshops in Dulwich schools on a Tuesday afternoon followed by a workshop at Dulwich library on Wednesday afternoon.

Artists are also needed to be at the library on the Wednesday afternoons to talk to the children about their work. This has been very successful in the past, the children love talking to a “real artist” and the artists enjoy the children’s refreshing responses.

The dates and times for the workshops would be;

Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd March     1.30pm-3.30pm

Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th March     1.30pm-3.30pm

Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th March 1.30pm-3.30pm

Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd March 1.30pm-3.30pm

We also need volunteers to make sketchbooks. SLWA has all the materials we just need your time and patience!

Please contact Jackie Brown to register your interest jackiekbrown20a@gmail.com
