‘Stories For Us’ by Julian Gray – Exhibition & Events at The Lowry

We are VERY excited that a solo exhibition of one of our wonderful spoonie compatriot’s is now open at The Lowry! ‘Stories For Us’ by the very talented Julian Gray launched this week, along with a number of amazing (& wheelchair accessible, ofc) workshops, events and weekly drawing clubs.

Image Description: A hand-drawn sketch of two men. One is facing forward, looking ahead with a concerned expression. Behind him are some vague figures, and the second man, who is drawn from the side, with his arms folded, looking down.

Stories For Us Weekly Drawing Club

Still ill OK is very excited to be facilitating a weekly Drawing Club at The Lowry for the duration of the exhibition. These free drawing socials will be held every Wednesday 6-7pm in the (wheelchair accessible) Gallery A space at The Lowry. Some materials will be provided, but you are both welcome and encouraged to bring anything you’re currently working on, or your own sketchbook and tools.

Please note that you will need to book your free space online by clicking here in order to attend the Drawing Club

Free weekly drawing socials for artists who feel their stories are rarely represented in mainstream media, including but not limited to creatives who are trans, queer, disabled, neurodiverse, and/or people of colour. Chat and draw in a relaxed space.

Drawing materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Artists working in any form of media, whether digital or traditional, are welcome. Sessions are facilitated by Ellie Page (i.e. Yours Truly) who is a queer, disabled, arts practitioner.

Image Description: A black and white panel from Julian’s comic, The Invalid’s Valet. The perspective is from a front porch, showing the back of the main character, a male, sat on a wicker chair with a coat and scarf facing forward. He is looking at a tall man holding a garden rake, having a conversation with a woman wearing an apron. The setting is autumnal; a tree with leaves dropping, and a large expanse of grass with trees along the skyline.
