Adrian Lockhart + Jedda Robaard: Art for Books 

Adrian Lockhart’s love of the line in printmaking and drawing is well represented in his upcoming exhibition ‘Art for Books’ at Metropolis Gallery. But his discovery of artist books and their various forms is at the heart. Showing his books alongside related paintings, drawings, woodblocks, etchings and monotypes demonstrates how the union of the ‘book’ and the ‘mark’ has formed a significant direction in his already substantial and established life’s work.

For Jedda Robaard, book illustration is an opportunity to create little worlds where characters can play, unhindered by society’s restrictions. This body of work represents her journey creating those worlds, from her initial book Rabbit’s Year through to the ongoing Little Creatures Series. 

The majority of these pieces have been created simply with pencil and watercolour. They are just puddles of colour if you like. Puddles manipulated into tiny beings with feelings, obligations and agendas.

Friday 11 August - Meet the Artists on Opening Night, between 6 - 8pm. Both exhibitions run until 26 August.

Saturday 19 August at 10.30am - Jedda will present an Artist’s Talk about her work for childrens’ books to coincide with Children’s Book Week.
All Welcome.

Metropolis Gallery is open Weekdays 9am - 5pm and Saturday 10 - 4pm. Preview works online.
