Illustrating the Future at Woodend: Exhibition by UK's Leading Illustrators.



This month sees the Gallery at Woodend Creative Workspace in the Crescent play host to an exhibition of work by the UK's leading illustrators.

The exhibition features work from illustrators of all types: from cutting edge digital design right through to traditional book and magazine illustrations.

Woodend Director Andrew Clay explains:
"This is the touring exhibition from the Association of Illustrators. It's their annual exhibitions of the award winning work from their Designers and Illustrators of the Year competition." 
"We're really excited that the Association of Illustrators has chosen Woodend as one of it's venues. They are only four venues throughout the UK and Woodend will be the only one in the North East of England."
The exhibition will include illustrations from around the world and will cover categories ranging from advertising and design to books - including children's books - to research and the communication of knowledge. The range of winners covers established names in the industry as well as new, emerging talent.

Also showcased will be the wide range of materials that have been used to create the winning illustrations - everything from tired and trusted ink, pencil and print to more modern methods such as Photoshop, digital and animated GIFs.
"What's important about this exhibition is that it showcases illustration not just as a finished product, but also as a career. That's relevant for all our designers here at Woodend, and also for the schools and colleges in Scarborough and beyond. I really hope it will show young people that you don't necessarily need to go to London or a big city to pursue a creative career. I'd encourage anyone interested in working in illustration and design to come along." said Andrew
The exhibition will run from May 4th to June 14th and, as with all the exhibitions at Woodend, admission will be free. Woodend is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, plus Saturday 10am to 4pm for the duration of the exhibition.
