Sadly we announce with regret that this year’s exhibition will the final winter show here at Bury St, however we wish to celebrate the 13 years in St. James’s and the 23 years since the inception of what has been a most exciting journey.
In this final show we will feature many of our favourite and best-loved artists – those with whom we have worked for over two decades, and have become long-standing friends over many years. Much-loved illustrators such as Shirley Hughes, Anthony Browne, David McKee, Brian Wildsmith, Angela Barrett, Anita Jeram, Jane Ray, John Lawrence, Chris Wormell, Lauren Child and Benedict Blathwayt as well as those from farther afield such as Satoshi Kitamura, Shaun Tan and Maurice Sendak - all will be featured alongside film animators such as Nick Park and those at the Aardman Film Studios, and Brian Cosgrove, creator of Danger Mouse. We will also show graphic novel artwork by Alexis Deacon and Oliver Jeffers, with whom we have worked since his first book - and many others all of whom are household names.
With the onset of the festive season there will be an array of books signed by much-loved artists such as Axel Scheffler and Laura Carlin and we will also have a few rare books signed by our late dear friend Babette Cole.
We warmly extend our welcome for you to visit our 23rd Christmas Show, and much look forward to seeing many, who have been such great supporters and friends throughout the years.
The gallery will be open until 22nd December 2018. Online sales will continue over the festive period and on until 7 January 2019.
