Artwork of the week - by Tanya Raabe-Webber

We are delighted to present our first 'artwork of the week' for 2016, The Event: a gathering and sharing of learning disability art practices and cultural influences. This painting is one of three panels that make up a stunning triptych. Acclaimed portrait artist Tanya Raabe-Webber created this painting from photographs she took at the 'International Summit for Learning Disability Artists and their Support Studios', during her time with us as artist in residence.

This colourful depiction of the Summit shows the energy and creativity at play both at the Summit and in the artists' mind. This is just one of the many portraits Tanya completed during her residency. The exhibition, #SummitPortrayed,  opens this Saturday the 16th, with a live portrait painting in the gallery from 1pm, and a drinks reception at 4pm. All welcome!
