Don’t miss graphic novelist Gareth Brookes’ solo show of embroideries, prints and drawings at new gallery 155a Artists Space in East Dulwich.
Gareth will also be running two beginners workshops aimed at those keen to learn the art of embroidery. These take place on Sunday 25th November 2-4pm and Monday 26th November 7-9pm. Places are limited so booking is essential. Tickets available here and here.
The show will feature new embroideries from Gareth’s forthcoming work Threadbare, as well as prints and drawings from The Black Project, A Thousand Coloured Castles and his latest short comic, Afterwords. All works will be for sale, plus there will be a pop up comic/graphic novel/zine shop.
The show will run from Thursday 22nd – Monday 26th November, 10am – 6pm. There will also be a private view on Thursday 22nd from 7-9pm.
Gareth is author of The Black Project (Myriad 2013), a darkly funny story of obsession, beautifully crafted in embroidery and lino-cut. In the past year Gareth has been a visiting lecturer at Wimbledon School of Art, the University of York St Johns, Staffordshire University and The Royal College of Art. He runs regular workshops in embroidery, printmaking, comic and zine making, most recently running workshops in embroidery at Bradford Literary Festival and in monoprint printmaking (with Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants) at The ICA, London.
Gareth also organises South London Comic and Zine Fair, an annual book fair featuring over 40 small press publishers and artists, which is focused on encouraging new artists to exhibit their work.
