New exhibition of Jim Petrie's work


A new exhibition of the artwork of the late Jim Petrie opens tomorrow (June 3rd) at the Lamb Gallery at the University of Dundee. It runs until 19th September. 

Here's the info:
This special exhibition celebrates the work of artist Jim Petrie, who died in 2014. A former student of Dundee College of Art (now Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design) and Dundee Training College (now the University’s School of Education, Social Work & Community Education), Jim later became a popular art teacher at Kirkton High School but is best known as the man who drew the "world's wildest tomboy" Minnie the Minx for 40 years in DC Thomson's famous comic The Beano.

Here's my tribute to Jim Petrie which I posted last year:

Love to go....though too far away for me...brilliant they are doing this for Jim...

Lew Stringer said...

Too far for me too, but there are a lot of Beano fans in Scotland so it's ideal for them.

The location makes perfect sense since both the Beano and Jim himself are from Dundee. I bet a lot of his old pupils will come to this.
