Mythical Creatures Exhibition at Here Gallery

For the latest Girls Who Draw exhibition we will be unleashing an array of fabulous beasts and beings to fill the windows and walls of Here Gallery. The show accompanies Mythical Creatures, the fourth limited edition Girls Who Draw postcard book, and will include a selection of prints and original artwork from the book as well as new pieces created especially for the gallery.

The exhibition line-up features a range of emerging and established female illustrators from around the UK and different characters from myths, legends and folklore. Amongst them will be Wood Troll and Firebird screen prints by Ruth Green, Pegasus and mermaid paintings by Lee May Foster-Wilson and prints of Imaginary Beings by Sarah Lippett. Some of the exhibitors have also made Mythical Creatures inspired products and craft-work such as Kate Hindley’s Ratatoskr cushions, Yee Ting Kuit’s Gnome and Unicorn brooches and Beth Morrison’s hand painted, wooden figures of Bigfoot and Brownie the helpful elf.

As part of the exhibition there will be a small showcase of self-published books from some of the exhibitors including mini comics by illustrator Kristyna Baczynski and handmade comics and zines by screen printers Esther McManus and Helen Entwisle. And as if that isn’t enough Gocco queen Xtina Lamb and myself will be printing, cutting and sticking to produce a large scale installation in the windows of Here Gallery.

The flyer is another amazing design by the super talented Kristyna Baczynski
