Out of the Silence

Saturday 6th July - Saturday 3rd August

10am until 4pm Tuesday - Saturday

Rook Lane Arts and Hunting Raven Bookshop present an exhibition of paintings, drawings, collage and graphic artwork from some of the literature’s leading contemporary  illustrators.  These are artworks which tell stories of intrepid journeys and magical quests; that take us to another place.

Featuring artworks by contemporary illustrators including Jackie Morris, Jessica Ahlberg, Nadine Wickenden and Sholto Walker, this exhibition will ignite the imagination and celebrate the transformative effect of a great story. The title, Out of the Silence, was inspired by the first lines of  Jackie Morris’ book, the Snow Leopard.

Alongside the main exhibition, Break 3 Words will be showcasing the shortlisted entries to the Young Illustrators book-cover competition for children and young people. This will take place in the café at Rook Lane Arts, with prizes awarded to the winning entries at the exhibition’s launch, during the Frome Festival.



School groups of all sizes are very welcome to attend, but group leaders are asked to contact Rook Lane Arts  in advance to arrange visiting times.
