Come and see the fantastic artwork of Discworld illustrator at the Chapel Gallery

There is still time to see the fabulous exhibition of artwork featuring Discworld characters created by the late Sir Terry Pratchett at the Chapel Gallery.

The Discworld series, which had 41 books, and other works written by Sir Terry are hugely popular around the globe. He was the UK’s best-selling author of the 1990s and his books have sold 85 million copies, as well as being translated into 37 languages.

Paul Kidby was Sir Terry’s artist of choice and has designed the Discworld book jackets since 2002 as well as many other Discworld publications. He has a huge fanbase himself internationally with more than 18,000 followers on Facebook.

This exhibition presents a wonderful collection of Paul’s drawings, oil paintings and watercolours.

Here you will find favourite Pratchett characters, book covers and some lesser known Discworld art work. There is also a range of Paul’s work from his own projects including the recently published book The Charmed Realm.

This is a touring exhibition organised by St. Barbe Museum & Art Gallery. It will run at the West Lancashire Borough Council-run Chapel Gallery in Ormskirk until Saturday 1 December.

Councillor Yvonne Gagen, portfolio holder for Leisure, said: “I am delighted that the Chapel Gallery is hosting this fantastic touring exhibition. I would encourage fans of Sir Terry Pratchett and Paul Kidby to come and see the fabulous artwork on display.”
