Yvonne Jerrold's paintings in Prickwillow Phone Box Gallery

 

The Phonebox Gallery, Main St., Prickwillow

This was the brainchild of villager and gallery curator Nick Edell who received enthusiastic backing from Prickwillow Village Council, back in the Autumn 2010, when the council purchased the phone box from BT for just £1 with the only restriction on the sale being that it was not moved. With no funds available for the restoration, a number of villagers stepped in to offer their services for free. Local builder Dave Simpson carried out the bulk of the work using red and black paint leftover from a refurbishment of the village hall. The door lock was fitted by Council Member Richard Raine and the box was cleaned by East Cambs District Councillor Jackie Petts.

A Book of drawings and statements by 100 illustrators, artists and cartoonists who Believe in Drawing.


by John Holder and Philip Hodgkinson

 

This book published by Haus is available at Heffers for £15. There are short essays and statements on 'Why I believe in Drawing'  by 100 artists, with examples of their work. Anyone who likes drawing will enjoy this book for the wide variety of styles and content. There are 7 contributions from members of the CDS.

'In an age of the virtual, when the chosen means for many artists is film, photograph, or even sound, the primacy of drawing may seem under threat. However, in  many instances, drawing remains as crucial for artists who are at the forefront of innovation as it does for those who maintain a commitment to a more traditional language.' - from the foreword by Sir Nicholas Serota
