LONDON.- Halcyon Gallery has announced details of the first UK leg of The Drawn Blank Series museum tour, with Bob Dylans unique and impressive artwork set to be exhibited at The Lightbox museum and gallery in Woking from 25th November 2008.
The Drawn Blank Series was launched at Halcyon Gallery, Mayfair, in June 2008 to widespread critical acclaim, and is the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of Bob Dylans paintings ever assembled. The Lightbox exhibition will be the first chance to view the works outside London, and the tour will continue in 2009. Further details of The Drawn Blank Series UK and international museum tour will be announced by Halcyon Gallery later this year.
Dylan has been a committed visual artist for more than four decades, and this collection casts a new light on the creativity of one of the worlds most important and influential figures. The Drawn Blank Series echoes the themes and images of Dylans prose, poetry and music, and the paintings are based on sketches made while on the road during the period of 1989 to 1992.
Paul Green, President of Halcyon Gallery commented: The launch of The Drawn Blank Series earlier this year at Halcyon Gallery was hugely successful. This museum tour, beginning at The Lightbox, gives even more people in the UK and internationally the chance to view this remarkable body of work.
One of the most exciting gallery spaces in the South East, The Lightbox was awarded The Art Fund Prize for museums and galleries in May this year; the UKs largest arts prize. The Lightbox was designed by Marks Barfield Architects and opened to the public in September 2007.
