the twinkling tree: corrina askin

free admission

Having exhibited with us as part of August Children’s Month in 2016, artist and illustrator Corrina Askin
exhibits an exciting new body of work related to two new animation series.

The Twinkling Tree is a concept which centres on Jude and the characters who live in a fabulous walled garden. Guided by her friends, Mr. Bones, and Wobbly Bob, she could get lost in conversation at the Bridge of a Thousand Beards or learn to speak in pictures with Hoppy or end up flying in a hot air balloon with The Fearless Boy. The Twinkling Tree is a uniquely eccentric and beautiful show for pre-schoolers about the magic of discovery, trusting in the universe and following your own path in life. Corrina is currently in discussions with a leading animation company to develop this concept further.

Louis and How to Just Be is a feel good emotional guide for 12 years to adult. Louis is for those moments
when we get stuck. Humour helps us shift gear and let a ‘hard moment’ pass. Louis and How to Just Be is about stillness, curiosity, and love and not taking ourselves too seriously. It will appear on the CBeebies/
CBBC social media platform in autumn 2017.

Perfect for our galleries through October, we will have accompanying art sheets for children and young people to be inspired by Corrina’s exhibition and the neighbouring exhibition by Welsh sculptor Ryan Burke – both exhibitions complement each other so much in inviting the viewer into extraordinary creative worlds.
*Corrina is providing a FREE talk for students and creative practitioners on her animation practice and creative work on Thursday 26 October from 2-3.30pm. This workshop is free but please book your place in advance by calling us on 028 77760650.
*Corrina is also providing creative workshops for young people aged 11+ years on developing storyboards, characters, and animation. Please see our Make & Do page for details.

  • We LOVE ❤️ these fab tote bags made by our Connecting Creatively group last Thursday night. Inspired by our #louisebourgeois #exhibition currently on show, the Connecting Creatively course aims to help adults explore expressing themselves and their emotions creatively in a supportive and intimate group setting. Perfectly apt for Louise Bourgeois whose #emotional #life dominated her creative work. #learning #community #create #inspiration #internationalartist #northernireland #limavady #exhibition #galleryeducation #bringingarttolight #theangrycat
