This fabulous exhibition features rare watercolours by Eric Ravilious and also emphasises the importance of graphic design for Edward Bawden. Examples of Bawden's work are seen in this post. Bawden had a distinctive style in his work that reflected his own quirkiness. Both artists had distinct visions, Ravilious was noted for calm even in his paintings as WWII war artist. Bawden's commissions included a wide variety of projects from prominent household names to London Transport. Together Ravilious and Bawden developed a flourish art community in Great Barfield, Essex, arriving there in 1931. ‘The Ingram Collection & The Fry Art Gallery: ‘Bawden, Ravilious and the art of Great Bardfield’. http://ow.ly/q1KO50K8yub Exhibition images: Courtesy of The Fry Art Gallery and The Ingram Collection. #ravilious #ericravilious #edwardbawden #illustration #graphic design #essex #woking #surrey The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art Graphic Designers Group The Surrey Lieutenancy Visit Surrey Essential Surrey & SW London

Our #free Centrepiece exhibition is open until 14th Aug. Our exhibition trailer celebrates the imaginative and creative talent at local schools here in Surrey. We have loved seeing their ideas and how they have responded to 'Star Turn,' a lively image of an acrobat hand standing on the back of a horse. The exhibition is in response to the beautiful ink and watercolour work, ‘Star Turn,' by John Rattenbury Skeaping, 1936. A huge well done to all of the young creatives and schools that took part! http://ow.ly/hLh850K9oCv #localschools #woking #surrey #exhibition #creativekids #creativeschools Gordon's School Sythwood Primary School Kids in Museums

Scarface by Seamus Cuddihy
Seamus Cuddihy probably took inspiration for this work from Scarface, a 14-year-old lion in from Masai Mara, Kenya, who attracted widespread international coverage. The name was given to him after he injured his right eye in a fight over the Marsh Pride territory.
This work was made from the root and stump of a cherry tree. It took 2 years and approximately 150 hours to complete. For Cuddihy, the material is incredibly important to his work. He enjoys exploring the unique sculptural possibilities and challenges of working with restrictive materials like wood and metal. Cuddihy lets the natural characteristics of the material take over his work, allowing it to influence the final outcome.
