LOCAL EVENTS FOR 2023

2024

FEBRUARY 2024

until 24 March: Heath Robinson Museum, Pinner: Exhibition – Mary V. Wheelhouse, Suffragette, Illustrator and Toymaker. Despite a career illustrating books, crafting toys for Liberty’s and Harrods, and promoting the work of her fellow women artists, Wheelhouse’s work has never been shown in a solo exhibition. Familiar with both the paintbrush and the placard, Wheelhouse was a dedicated suffragette. She helped found the Artists’ Suffrage League and exhibited with the Women’s International Art Club for many years, and was a tireless supporter of women artists, writers and crafters. This exhibition displays her vivid and detailed illustrations, as well as the wooden ‘Pomona’ toys she created with fellow artist and suffragette campaigner Louise Jacobs. See three artistic careers overlap as Wheelhouse illustrates novels and stories, produces dynamic oil paintings and charms viewers of her delicate wooden dolls. Discover her legacy, not only as a fierce advocate for women’s rights, but also as a skilled, serious and endlessly versatile artist. 1am-4pm, Thursday-Sunday. Tickets – adults, £6; over 65s, £5; student (25+)/people with disabilities, £4; child (18 and under), free; student (24 and under), free.
