A drawing exhibition has been launched in Grantham showcasing the talents of eight artists.
The Make Your Mark exhibition is running at the Blue Owl Art gallery at Grantham Tennis Club. It is a contemporary drawing exhibition running alongside the world’s biggest drawing festival, The Big Draw, at The V&A Museum of Childhood.
Belinda Thomas and Jette Rasmussen say they are delighted that the launch of their second exhibition drew in art lovers from around the East Midlands.
The exhibition features eight artists – Steve Dargavel, Amir Ghazi-Noory, Linda Hollaway, Barbara Karn, Carolyn Roberts, Mary Romer Greenfield, Kate Robotham and Sam Smith.
There is a huge variety of original art work for sale ranging from the realistic to the abstract in style. Three of the artists are taking portrait commission bookings ready for Christmas (examples of their skilled drawing can be seen in the gallery).
This time the exhibition extends into the bar area as well as the first floor gallery space.
Blue Owl also has many events planned at the club over the coming months including drop-in and draw every Saturday morning during October to be part of The Big Draw; a talk by Nicola Streeton, novelist and illustrator on the evening of October 9; a half-term art camp; pet portraits from life November 8 and 9 and a sociable evening of making your own Christmas decorations on December 4.
Belinda said: “We’d love to see you at the gallery, come and visit us and tell us what you think about the drawings – and don’t forget we have a range of hand made cards and contemporary designer jewellery and other hand designed items if you’re looking for that unique gift’.

The exhibition is open daily until December 31. There is free parking and an on-site café.
