Now this is something I'd attend in a heartbeat if it was UK based: Amsterdam based Gallery 33 are having the coolest exhibition I've seen for a while opening tomorrow, with 24 artists from around the world, including Jon Burgerman, Jake Parker, Guillaume Singelin, Andrew Lyons, Hannah K, Olle Forsslöf, Laszlito Kovacs, Saša Ostoja, Patrick Crotty, Elliot Alfredius and others invited to illustrate the same subject: dinosaurs. The show, titled Feathers (in reference to the theory that birds are the last remnants of dinosaurs), features work created using a variety of materials and techniques- watercolours, pure digital illustration, risograph prints, to wood carved dinosaur sculptures.
Artists were given a brief that asked them to revisit their childhood, on the basis that 'Pretty much every kid in the world goes through a "dinosaur phase" ' and create a new work accordingly. Anybody who reads this blog or my twitter regularly knows I love, and am fascinated by, dinosaurs, as are most people (or should be!), and I think this is a fab, fun idea for an exhibition with wide audience appeal.
The exhibition will run from October 25th, 2013 till January 6th.You can find more details and a full list of participating artists on the Gallery 33 website.
