Marion Deuchars 'Art For All' exhibition is unveiled at Kingston

We're delighted to announce that a new exhibition has been unveiled in the Art Space in Cass Art Kingston.

Art For All is an interactive exhibition by award-winning illustrator Marion Deuchars. It has travelled down from The Art Space in our shop in Glasgow and is now open to the public in Kingston. Admission is free and the doors are open to adults, children, art-lovers and shoppers alike. 

But what can you expect to see there?

Internationally-acclaimed for her activity books Let’s Make Some Great Art, Let’s Make Some Great Fingerprint Art and most recently Draw Paint Print Like The Great Artists, Marion’s exhibition in the Art Space is all about encouraging everybody to get creative and lose the fear of drawing.

Marion Deuchars: Do Something, Jasper Johns

Art For All
 includes two play desks scattered with visual guides, pens and inkpads so you can all get stuck in and discover illustration for yourselves. Draw aliens, make a monster, copy Mona Lisa’s smile or try out a self-portrait – whatever takes your fancy. 

An interactive chalkboard is also awaiting your designs, so let your imagination take hold and finish Marion’s doodles by drawing directly onto the wall!

The exhibition also refers back to Marion’s famous activity books. Happy woodland creatures made out of inky fingerprints peer out from one wall, whilst her celebration of the great artists feature on another. Also, can you spot the birds and other little critters lining the walls? Her hand-painted creatures are hiding in different corners…

 Marion Deuchars: Happy woodland creatures

Marion is originally from Falkirk in Scotland, and is a dear friend of Cass Art. She is the artist behind our Open For Art advertising campaign, and her signature hand lettering can be found quoting famous artists on the walls of our shops. Her other creative projects have included commissions for Penguin Books, the Royal Mail, The Guardian, Samsung and the Italian restaurant chain Carluccio’s.

Discover the freedom and fun that drawing can bring to all the family with Art For All - and celebrate the second show in Kingston's Art Space.

Feeling inspired?
 
Art For All is open at our Cass Art Kingston store at weekends during store opening hours. You can also view it by appointment during the week by emailing kingstonartspace@cassart.co.uk.

The exhibition is open until 31st May 2015. The Art Space is located upstairs in Cass Art Kingston. Admission is free and we’d love to see you there!

Marion's Let's Make Some Great Art books are available in all Cass Art stores.

Her new book, Draw Paint Print Like The Great Artists, is now available at Cass Art with some exclusive pages on Georges Seurat, which aren't available in any other copies.
