Speaking of the exhibition at the launch, Jodie Marks says;
“The Architecture Centre is pleased to present this first-ever exhibition of Garth England’s drawings. Not only do they offer a unique snapshot of twentieth century life in the city but they demonstrate the value of innate creativity in everyone and how that can help us understand places. The Architecture Centre encourages people to be the experts of their own place, as Garth was his, and these drawings demonstrate how people help places come alive.”
“The exhibition provides a chance to see the work of this enigmatic man in the flesh and a true insight into his very particular vision.” Aldo Rinaldi, Senior Public Art Officer at Bristol City Council
