Drawing Tuesday: Back at The Beaney
Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in the morning. It's an excellent museum for sketching in , with well chosen ( and lit!) display, good interpretation and lots of chairs and tables , even pencils, laid out. I loved this medieval greyware pot (above) in the 'Materials and Masters' Gallery with it's thumbprints round the base and I've got these green pots in mind for my next visit!
'The Drawing Room' had a new exhibition of artists books titled ' Prescriptions' with interesting, thought provoking and moving (sometimes disturbing ) interpretations on the themes of well- being and medicine. I recognized a few names from 'sketchbook project challenges'
The exhibition is on until August ( the 'magic Lantern' exhibition was also intriguing)
