Gallery 133 of King St in Great Yarmouth’s emerging multi-cultural quarter, will be reflecting the zeitgeist during the election with a show of current drawings by ex Yarmouth High School students turned award-winning political cartoonists, Brian Adcock and Iain Green.
Brian and Iain grew up together, competing as 11 year olds with drawings in their exercise books and are now both experienced political cartoonists working for national newspapers.
They will be demonstrating their art and satirical skills during the 133 Election Special – a politically themed Gallery show which will be inviting members of the public, local candidates and artists along to document and discuss the issues of the day. The results will be on show in the gallery and will also be available as limited edition prints from the gallery’s website: gallery133.net
Gallery133 is an evolving contemporary art gallery and social enterprise at the heart of Yarmouth’s emerging multi-cultural quarter. Housed in a beautiful Georgian merchants house around a courtyard, with three studio workshops and project spaces attached, the broad aim is to create a centre for learning about, producing and showing art in all forms.
For the 133 Election Special, visitors are being invited to get involved with pens and paper and produce something in response to the election themselves with results on display in the gallery.
Members of all parties have been invited!
133 has also invited several other artists responses to the election – so expect some unexpected contributions as well…
Yarmouth has been attracting national attention as a potential UKIP victory with visitors including the BBC’s Newsnight and leaders of both main parties in recent weeks.
Come along to the 133 Election Special between the 18th April and the 16th May and register your, er, cartoon!
