LOCAL EVENTS FOR 2018

OCTOBER 2018
October-18 November: Heath Robinson Museum – Peter Pan and the Lost Children.

The exhibition features two  talented Edwardian female illustrators whose work has been largely forgotten. Alice Bolingbroke Woodward was the first illustrator of the story of Peter Pan. She illustrated many books for Blackie & Sons and for George Bell between 1895 and the 1930s including a new edition of Alice in Wonderland. The exhibition has been designed around 19 of the original watercolour drawings from her Peter Pan and includes 7 watercolours from Alice. Edith Farmiloe was the wife of a vicar who had parishes first in Soho and then in Hackney and between 1895 and 1909 she wrote and illustrated stories based on the lives of the children from the mostly  poor families who lived in her husband’s parishes. Self-taught, she had a natural affinity with the children’s world. The exhibition of work by these two women artists will coincide with the centenary of the Representation of the People Act of 1918.

14-20 October: Harrow Camera Club’s Annual Photographic Exhibition at the Cow Byre Gallery, Manor Farm, Ruislip. Prints and projected images will be on display: landscapes, portraits and people, the natural world, creative and imaginative images.

24 November-17 February 2019: Heath Robinson Museum – Heath Robinson’s Home Life. From about 1930 onwards Heath Robinson’s humour was centred on domestic life. In 1934 his house “The Gadgets” was constructed at the Ideal Home Exhibition, and in 1936 How to Live in a Flat, the first of his series of “How to…” books was published. This exhibition will show an early series of “Ideal Home” cartoons published in 1933 and rare photographs of the construction of Heath Robinson’s house at the Ideal Home Exhibition. It was peopled with more than thirty life-like moving figures, all busy about their daily tasks, assisted by numerous contraptions. It was this construction that later provided the inspiration for the opening scenes of the Wallace and Gromit film ‘The Wrong Trousers’. There will be original artwork from How to Live in a Flat which gently satirised modernist architecture and Art Deco design as well as his usual target of people who take themselves too seriously. Subsequent books in that series address gardening, motoring and marriage. During the Second World War he presented his hilarious ideas of How to Run a Communal Home and How to Build a New World assisted by a host of new gadgets. Examples of the set of nursery china that Heath Robinson designed in 1927 for a Knightsbridge department store will be on show.
