Feature Drawing coming to a blog near you!

Here at Mission Gallery we have decided to move our ever popular Feature Drawing activity onto here!

In the gallery you will find a clip board where you can create your master piece as usual. Once complete, you can hand it in at the front desk. The drawing will then be photographed and posted alongside others in a blog post as well as one lucky young artist being selected as the months Feature Drawing Winner, to be framed and displayed in the gallery.

ZEBRA

bye bye Zebra pencil sharpener; you did us proud

 A tribute to our friend; ‘Zebra’

Last week was brilliant at Mission Gallery we had lots of visits from artists who have donated work for the Art Auction (20th Aug – 2pm) at the famous Reading Room on Alexandra Road. Amongst the lovely artists to pop into Mission Gallery was Claire Curneen who brought along 4 year old Esther.

Inspired by our friend, ‘Zebra – the pencil sharpener’, Esther drew a fantastic portait of him which has been chosen as this weeks feature drawing .

About Zebra

Zebra is made of wood and features some lovely stripes and a kind smile. He came to Mission Gallery via a dark and gloomy attic. Following his release, Zebra donated his life to helping pencils create bright and beautiful drawings. As with many of our volunteers at Mission Gallery, Zebra was happy in his work and a valuable team member. He understood the aims of Mission Gallery and helped us to achieve many of our desired goals. His particular area of interest was education and he could be found on a daily basis in our new Books & Resource Area. He was a friendly pencil sharpener who stood proudly on his island of red. He inspired many young artists and liked mainly green pencils. Zebra was not so keen on large triplus learner’s pencils, as their triangular shape often got stuck in his belly. Esther’s realistic portrait is the last known image of Zebra as we came in on this bright Monday morning to find Zebra in pieces! Zebra stayed in safe hands with the full-time staff during the children’s workshop today with tutor Keith Bayliss and assistant Lauren Savigar. Lauren is a wonderful volunteer at Mission Gallery and has kindly volunteered to take Zebra away for some TLC. We wish Lauren and Zebra all the best and look forward to seeing him again soon.
In the meantime if you would like to visit his portrait he is on display in Mission Gallery courtesy of Esther  during 15th- 21st August. 

Congratulations Esther!

The gallery is full of young artists today! We’re closed to the public on a Monday giving up lots of opportunity for education and today Keith Bayliss has begun his workshops that focus on the new exhibition of painting; Live Out Loud. It’s great to hear so many enthusiastic voices chatting about painting and creating some great work to fill the gallery with during bank holiday weekend (27th – 29th August).

We also have a brand new feature drawing! This weeks feature drawing is from young artist, Fred who is 5 years old. Fred’s drawing will be on display at Mission Gallery from 8th – 14th August.  It’s three lovely smiling people, just like the staff here! Fred’s certificate is on its way over to him and framed up for all to see. However there were so many great young artists this week, we thought we would put them here for all to see. Enjoy!
