Mythical Creatures Exhibition at Here Gallery

For our latest Girls Who Draw exhibition, we will be unleashing an array of fabulous beasts and beings to fill the windows and walls of Here Gallery in Bristol. The show accompanies the Mythical Creatures postcard book and will include a selection of prints and original artwork from the book as well as new pieces created especially for the gallery.

The exhibition line-up features a range of emerging and established female illustrators from around the UK and different characters from myths, legends and folklore. Amongst them will be Wood Troll and Firebird screen prints by Ruth Green, Wear Wolf and Flying Fox prints by Sandra Dieckmann and drawings of Imaginary Beings by Sarah Lippett. Lee May Foster-Wilson will be exhibiting her Pegasus and mermaid paintings which were originally created for the postcard book. Some of the exhibitors have also made Mythical Creatures inspired products and craftwork such as Kate Hindley’s Ratatoskr cushions, Yee Ting Kuit’s Gnome and Unicorn brooches and Beth Morrison’s hand drawn, wooden figures of Bigfoot and Brownie the helpful elf.

As part of the exhibition there will be a small showcase of self-published books from some of the exhibitors including mini comics by illustrator Kristyna Baczynski and screen printed comics and zines by print-makers Esther McManus and Helen Entwisle. And as if that isn’t enough, Karoline Rerrie and Print Gocco Queen Xtina Lamb will be printing, cutting and sticking to produce a large scale installation in the windows of Here Gallery.
