Drawing Room II, 2009

Group exhibition
Royal West of England Academy, Bristol
Sunday, 18 January 2009 – Sunday, 15 February 2009

Steel perfection

Karen Le Roy Harris was invited to be part in a group exhibition of artists that recently graduated with a first class honours.

To kick-start the year the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol is hosting an exciting new drawing exhibition. Drawing Room II will ride again after the great successes of its forerunner in 2006. This time, the exhibition will feature RWA Academicians, University of the West of England honours graduates and artists from the Bristol Drawing School, as well as a collection of drawings from the RWA’s Permanent Collection and a beautiful portrait on loan of Nobel Prize winner Dorothy Hodgkin by Bryan Organ. Also on display will be drawings by local architect David Austin.

On show in the main two galleries will be works by RWA Academicians including painters Kurt Jackson and Anthony Eyton RA, sculptor John Huggins and printmakers James Beale and Bronwen Bradshaw. These Academicians will challenge our perceptions of what constitutes a drawing. For example, Rachael Nee draws with smoke, using the flame as a ‘living brush’. She uses the sooty carbon trace left from a candle flame to make her smoke drawing
