A free exhibition at Bristol's oldest art gallery, featuring artwork by 45 leading children's book illustrators
Drawing Europe Together is an exhibition of artworks created by 45 children’s book illustrators from across Europe who have shared their powerful visions of the European Union's shared past and its unsure future. This is a passionate and heartfelt exploration of Europe and what it means to many of the people who live and work within its borders.
From Brexit bees to wall-jumping bulls, Drawing Europe Together is a unique portrayal of the European community . . . with or without Britain.
Artists include: Axel Scheffler, Quentin Blake, Judith Kerr, Chris Riddell, Claude K. Dubois and many more.
In the wake of 31st January and in the dawn of a new decade, join us for a panel discussion which will cover the UK's new position in Europe, where we go from here and how our identity, both national and personal, will change over the next few months and years. The panel includes Axel Scheffler, Maike Bohn and Penny Dale. See more...
