Drawn Together

Highlighting the multiform ways that drawing can be used to express emotion and convey information, Drawn Together at Bury St Edmunds Art Gallery included works by regional artists and a selection of drawings from The Arts Council Collection. The exhibition was programed to coincide with 'Drawing Power', a national initiative by The Campaign for Drawing that has the simple but ambitious aim of getting everyone drawing.

Artists included in the exhibition were invited to work in the gallery, enabling visitors to meet and talk to the artists. Drawing equipment was also available for visitors to participate. A large length of communal drawing was produced over the period of the show. Once a week after school the resident artist offered a structured workshop encouraging children to make their contribution to the exhibition.
