The Travelling Menagerie comes to Falmouth

The 'Girls Who Draw' invite you to visit their 'Travelling Menagerie' exhibition which will be at the Here and Now Gallery in Falmouth during July. The show features artwork from the 'Menagerie' postcard book alongside new work based on the same theme. The 10 illustrators participating in 'Travelling Menagerie' are Anke Weckmann, Mary Kilvert, Gemma Correll, Kate Hindley, Sarah Ray, Ruth Green, Yee Ting Kuit, Currentstate (aka Jane Anderson) Karoline Rerrie and Michelle Turton. We also have a special guest, the illustrator, screen printer and zine maker extraordinaire Helen Eintwisle who sells work under the name Memo. Helen has made zines especially for the 'Travelling Menagerie' exhibition. There will be all sorts of 'Menagerie' based merchandise on sale at Here and Now throughout the duration of the exhibition and maybe even a bit longer.
