Sketching it Out  

24th / 25th March 11am- 4pm

During 2017, a number of sketchbookscirculated between the members of

Artist group Unit 9.  

The challenge for each artist was to make a contribution to the sketchbook, either responding in some way to what had gone before and developing a theme, or perhaps taking the thread off in an entirely new direction.  A stimulating and inspiring collaborative work.

The group is based at the South Square Arts Centre, Thornton:

John Allcock  Pat Belson   Patricia Calver   Jennie Crawford Sylvi Gibbs    Diane Jones    Richard Mort   Denise Oukhaba  Viv Owen    Nikki Sheen   Brian Rowlands   June Russell

Jonnie Brooks is a young artist whose career started at Northlight classes in his teenage years. Now a Fine Art student in Manchester, this is his first solo exhibition.He defies conventions in making his art. Seemingly random imagery from a plethora of theories, themesand concepts collide to create a very personal, multi-layered take on the world we live in. His work uses diverse media: painting, assemblage,

sculpture, sound and installation.

“I take great influence and joy from chaos and it's eventual purity”
