The Big Draw 2023: Time to Connect Exhibition at Mansfield Central Library
Tracey Meek & Mandy Keating
Mansfield Central Library
The work on display in The Big Draw 2023: Time to Connect Exhibition shows the story of the project: a mixture of work by visual artists Mandy Keating and Tracey Meek, sculptor Chris Campbell and photographer Alistair Morrison, who have been working with schools, community groups and members of the public to connect with the people and places of Nottinghamshire to inspire the legacy artwork.
The Big Draw 2023 Festival theme #DrawingwithSenses explores the way we personally process the world and internalise our experiences through our senses.
This year we have joined forces with the Miner2Major Landscape Partnership Scheme to help leave a legacy of artworks in key locations across Sherwood Forest, inspired by and drawing from the work created in our Big Draw workshops.
This public exhibition will include those artworks created during The Big Draw 2023: Time to Connect workshops that will take place in late summer of 2023 in six locations around Sherwood Forest. Come and see what amazing art has been created, inspired by the land around us.
This work is part of a wider national project working with renowned portrait photographer, Alistair Morrison. Alistair has created Time to Connect, to photograph people and places around the UK, and Nottinghamshire is delighted to be part of this journey!
