'Ravilious in Pictures' - Competition and Talk
The arts website Culture24 has just launched a competition: three sets of the 'Ravilious in Pictures' books are up for grabs, and the question you have to answer if you want to enter is not too tricky...
On the same site there's also an interesting review of 'Ravilious in Essex', the fabulous show which is currently running at the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden. Fans of Ravilious will be well aware that you don't often get the chance to enjoy a dozen or more of his watercolours, and there are some gorgeous paintings on display. The Fry also has an unrivalled collection of Rav's woodcuts and blocks.
I'm heading over there on July 13 to give an illustrated talk on the artist and his work. It's at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House on the High Street in Saffron Walden and tickets are a very reasonable £6 on the door. I always enjoy getting out and about and showing people pictures I've taken and garnered during the research process, so I'm looking forward to it.
