Upcoming Exhibition: Small Fortunes

Drawn in Bristol illustrator Dawn Cooper brings a collection of illustrations exploring small fortunes and natural treasures to the Here Gallery this summer.  The show will feature new work inspired by maps and charts, a contemporary take on traditional fortune telling devices, and vintage natural history illustrations.

Dawn's work will be showing from Tuesday 3 June until Saturday 2 August, so head over to Stokes Croft and have a browse in the superb bookshop while you're at it.

Dawn's artwork begins as separate hand-drawn layers, which she transfers from her sketchbook onto the computer, to create detailed, textured illustrations with multiple layers and a strong emphasis on colour. She is also a great lover of quotes, the natural world and telling stories through a singular image, which present common themes within her work.
