Free with Exhibition Entry

Join artist Laurie Lax for the unfurling of her new flags, temporarily hung in place of the usual RWA insignia! Laurie will be creating her designs in the Drawing Lab during the last week of March, as well as running drawing mornings and a flag-themed workshop at the beginning of June.

Musician and composer Sam Halmarack has been commissioned to create an avant-garde musical accompaniment to the unfurling - an unusual spin on the traditional flag raising ceremony!

Tea and cake (flag-inspired!) will be available...

Laurie graduated in Fine Art from Bath School of Art & Design 2010. She is based at BV Studios in Bristol and has completed several residencies in Ireland, Sweden, Lithuania and Cumbria. She has exhibited nationally in London, Bristol, Dundee, Folkestone, Canterbury and Chester and internationally in Germany, Ireland and Poland. She is the co-founder of the Sondryfolk and DFW collectives and was selected for the Jerwood Drawing Prize exhibition 2014.
