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
