The collective I'm part of Girls Who Draw, invite you to their Magic Show at Solihull Gallery running from 4th April until the 11th June. The exhibitors – myself, Mina Braun, Chloe Cook, Helen Entwisle, Ruth Green, Kate Hindley, Mary Kilvert, Sarah Lippett, Beth Morrison, Sarah Ray, Karoline Rerrie and Daisy Whitehouse

We collaborate to produce a limited edition postcard book once a year, based on a theme and accompanied by an exhibition; this year’s theme is magic, and the Magic Show its exhibition. Each illustrator has explored the theme, interpreting it in their unique style and creating new work especially for the gallery. We’ve stitched, paper cut, painted and printed unusual artworks to adorn the whole space, ranging from small artists’ books and hand-sewn characters to large-scale installations.

Magic Show will be at Solihull Gallery from 4th April to 11th June, and throughout its run there will be opportunities to meet and even work with some of the illustrators involved.

Illustrators’ Afternoon Tea, G1 Gallery, 14th April, 3.30-8pm, free – Mary Kilvert and Sarah Ray will lead informal open portfolio reviews, giving those attending the chance to share their work with the group and gain feedback and encouragement. To book a place call the Solihull Gallery box office on 0121 704 6962.

Illustration and Print Fair with ‘Live Drawing’, Solihull Central Library and Arts Complex, 4th June, 10am-5pm – A chance to buy limited-edition prints, artists’ books, handmade cards and other unique artwork; the exhibitors will also be running ‘live drawing’ activities throughout the day – everyone is invited to participate in some large-scale drawing.
