17 Sep Introducing Festival Artist Cat Byrne
Local artist Cat Byrne has created the drawings of six of Todmorden Book Festival’s venues for this year’s Festival. The drawings feature the Hippodrome Theatre, the Library, Central Methodist Church, the Town Hall, St Mary’s Church and the Unitarian Church. You can see Cat’s drawings on the Festival website, in the programme and on our print marketing, and the original artwork will be included in an exhibition at Platform One Gallery from Thursday 15 November to Sunday 18 November and Thursday 22 November to Sunday 25 November, 11am-4pm. The free exhibition also showcases the work of paper cutting artist Pippa Dyrlaga, who uses traditional techniques to create contemporary artworks.
You can see more of Cat Byrne’s work at the Calder Valley Scribblers Comic Art Fair 2018 on Saturday 1 December 10am-4pm at The Old Co-op in Todmorden. Cat’s first commissioned comic The Life of Ethel Death was published in the pages of Splank! this year.
