Saturday 24th February 1.00 pm.Waterfront Gallery, Ipswich. Demonstration of drawing Leo Collins by Annabel Mednick

Beneath the Skin at the Waterfront Gallery, Ipswich. 
Exhibition continues till 28th 9.00 am - 4.00pm
Saturday 12.00-3.00pm
on Saturday 24th February 1.00 pm.
We would like to invite you to a Interactive demonstration  
of drawing  Leo Collins by Annabel Mednick
The call and response between the artist and the sitter is an exciting fluid experience and one that Leo and Annabel would like to share with others.

How is a person with a disability perceived when immortalized in stillness? How do you represent the external and internal self?

In the demonstration they talk together whilst Annabel sketches, changes and rubs the work and explores what is a true, or a sympathetic, or indeed a flattering image. The audience are also engaged as they ask for their opinions and directions.

Beneath The Skin at the Waterfront Gallery, 5th - 28th February 2018; Monday - Friday 9.00 am - 4.00 pm, Saturday, 12.00 - 3.00 pm

 Hooray, the exhibition is up and running. It's been a busy time.
We set up on 1st Feb, Carol Gant is in charge of the Waterfront gallery and it has been a pleasure working with her. She has made it all so easy for me.
At lunchtime Leo and myself had an interview with Jon Wright, for Suffolk radio.
Which was aired on Sunday February the 4th and you can hear a small clip if you click on the link below.

On the following Tuesday I had an interview with Andrew Clarke for the EADT and there was a huge spread on the Thursday in time for the launch of the exhibition.
(Click on the link below for the full article.)

The opening evening event was fantastic. We had a discussion first, introduced by the Dean of the school of arts and humanities, chaired by Stephanie Mackentyre... with a panel of Jon Furguson; an award winning photographer, Dr Alison Boggis; the course leader for Special educational needs and disability studies at the university, Hugh Whittall, Director of the Nuffield Council on Bio Ethics, Leo and Myself.

There must have been 80 people there.
We then went to look at the exhibition...where there were even more people.....
I was so thrilled. We have been working so long towards this, It was great to see it so well attended and enjoyed.
Leo and I are going to do a demonstration at the gallery on Saturday 24th at 1.00 pm
more details will follow, please do come along.

Here are a few snaps of the exhibition in situ.
