Drawn to Southampton: Art Exhibition by Ann Ridley
Come view local artist Ann Ridley's line drawings of Southampton, capturing a place and a moment in time. Exhibiting throughout October in the small space at the back of the community room, at October Books.
'Sure, you could say that this exhibition is about buildings. After all, there are buildings in all of my drawings. But I like to think it’s more than just that. It’s about my love of line and my deep attachment to Southampton. For me the two are inseparable. On a building you can map the lines of a place like age on skin. Buildings are our memories, habits, landmarks and homes. They are us.' -Ann Ridley
