Part 2 of Drop Me A Line

Part 2 of Drop Me A Line exhibition at Thelma Hulbert Gallery

After the success of Thelma Hulbert Gallery’s (THG) interactive exhibition Drop Me A Line – Part 1 featuring the sound installation and drawn lines of artists Michael Fairfax and Louise Baker – the gallery has launched Part 2.

This new exhibition will show the sound recordings and artwork made in response to Part 1 of the exhibition.

The new work will include among others, sculptures by Mill Water Community Special School and young people from East Devon’s SWITCH group, musical instruments created by students from Axe Valley Community College and Exeter Deaf Academy, drawn lines from MIND Mental Health and Magic Carpet Arts Charities and sound recordings with poems from Honiton Learning Community’s ‘Invigourwrite’ programme for primary schools.

Angela Blackwell, Thelma Hulbert Gallery curator, told ArtsCulture: “Visitors have really enjoyed interacting with the installation and recording their sounds.

“We have collated these for the second phase of the exhibition along with some amazing work produced by the many workshops with community groups and schools and also artworks produced by local people on our Honiton market stall.”

Examples of Louise Baker’s drawn lines will remain for visitors to enjoy alongside parts of the original installation by Michael Fairfax together with new examples of his hand-crafted instruments.
Drop Me a Line – Part 2: A community response to the work of artists Michael Fairfax and Louise Baker will be at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery until June 20 2015. Check opening times with the THG.
