Camden Commissions - Alice Lickens

Artists draw their Camden

With the support of House of Illustration, Swiss Cottage Gallery has launched the Camden Drawn project, inviting artists and illustrators to interpret Camden and show their work at Swiss Cottage Library from May 2017 to February 2018. By bringing what is outside in, the works are a fun representation of the diversity, community and adventure of Camden life!

Each poster will also be shown on the homepage of Love Camden for the duration of the exhibition. Keep an eye on Love Camden’s homepage for the most current poster and below to link to our archive!
