Hands Off!

17 Jun

Hands Off Oriel Ceri Richards! The slogan behind the protest at Swansea University earlier today, against the imminent closure of this established and popular gallery on the campus.

Oriel Ceri Richards

I had to have a scribble of course. I love to draw en plein air and I used white, sanguine and black conté crayons into my A4 brown paper sketchbook.

The protesters had made fab placards, very arty ones. To find out more about the campaign to keep the gallery open, please click here.

    So sorry to hear about the closure of this gallery, what a shame. Great drawing Rosie, those figures are very present

      Thanks Phil. It’s such a well established gallery. Pity.

    Followed a few links but couldn’t locate any information as to why it is closing–only why it shouldn’t. What are the main issues, do you know?

      I’ll see if I can find more info. The main thrust is they want the space for university expansion. …

        That sounds like a ploy to do nothing in particular with the space. Hmmm…
