Making a Mark – upcoming exhibition

Making a Mark

making mark - small

John Ledger, Richard Kitson,  Louise Wright,  Mikk Murray,  Jade Morris

22 July – 14 Aug (Thurs – Sun)

Hive Gallery, Elsecar Heritage Centre, Barnsley, S74 8HJ

Open evening: Friday 22 July, 7 – 9pm

This exhibition brings together a collection of young local artists who are heavily dependent on the practice of drawing, or even work primarily through it. The artists all live or were raised in the Barnsley area.

A collective who, through degrees of separation, share friendships and common interests, and this is a great chance to show to the rest of the area that is has a strong community of artists.

The artists use drawing for very different purposes, whether for understanding, for relaxation, exploration, the projecting of messages and even the exorcism of burning thoughts. All of them use it as a voice, perhaps their strongest voice.

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
