Art Appreciation Group at Quentin Blake Exhibition
Our first visit for 2013 was to a little known gallery attached to Kirkby Library to see the amazing works of Sir Quentin Blake – a real accolade for a provincial venue.
We were all spellbound at the talent pof this man who with just a few strokes of the brush/pen, conveys such feeling and, of course, humor into each work.
We, most of us in the group, being ladies, found the birthing cartoons so touching.
An added bonus was a visit from Martin Brichall, photographer from the Liverpool Echo, who took lots of photos of our group, he was delighted to see my two grandsons reading Rohal Dahl’s The Twits, in a lovely childs bedroom setting within the display.
They were subjected to the famous lens and were happy they got dragged along on the promise of a pizza later.

to see some of the artist’s work on his website. Ed.
