Exhibition offers up some comic relief

by ANTONY CLAY

AN art gallery has been transformed into a massive comic strip for a new exhibition.


Scribble, Doodle and Draw is being held at Doncaster’s The Point gallery until July 20.


The exhibition showcases giant original works created onsite by comic illustrators Jim Medway, Ed Syder and Tor Freeman.


It also gives visitors the opportunity to create their own comics and add them to the exhibition.


There are plenty of fun activities to take part in as well as comfy chairs in which you can relax and read comic books.


The Point in on South Parade in Doncaster and is open 10am to 4pm Monday and Friday, 10am to 7pm Tuesday to Thursday, and 9am to 1.30pm on Saturday.


Twelve-year-old Rufus and Wilf (seven) visited the exhibition on its opening day and said they enjoyed the experience.


Wilf said: “I liked that you could make your own comics for the exhibition.


“I spent ages reading comics upstairs.”


He said that his favourite part of the exhibition was “the big comics on the walls”.


Rufus enjoyed the giant comics. He said: “They were really funny and the artists’ ideas were very clever.”


He added that his favourite part was “the activities room because of the range of activities available”.


Rufus said that once he had created his own comic and put it on the wall “it felt really good to see my work up there as everyone can be part of the exhibition. I think that there should be more exhibitions like this around to celebrate different artists’ work. It was brilliant.”
