Edward Bawden Exhibition

"The Storyteller"

Step inside the mind of Edward Bawden, the storytelling artist. 

Edward Bawden had the incredible talent of telling stories through his art. As such, publishers commissioned him to illustrate a number of books and poems with his unique and enthralling lino printed images.

On the 30th anniversary of his death, this exhibition will showcase some of his wonderful illustrations, humour and style. 

Fun and engaging for children, and visually thoughtful for adults, this exhibition will challenge how artists like Bawden can be celebrated and exhibited.
