Bonnie Hawkins's drawings for Under Milk Wood

Monday 20th May to end of June

Dylan Thomas's 'play for voices', Under Milk Wood has attracted artists in many different media since it was first broadcast in February 1954, just months after his tragic death in New York at the age of 39. The responses include a jazz suite by Stan Tracy, collages by Peter Blake and an opera by John Metcalf, while film, cartoon, television and theatre versions abound. A series of short radio pieces by six Welsh authors, commissioned by the BBC to mark its seventieth anniversary this year, testified to its continuing appeal as a creative catalyst.
Bonnie Hawkins's varied and beautiful drawings of the dramatis personae of Under Milk Wood therefore join a long line of artistic interactions with the play, and it should be said at the outset that they are as original and striking as any of their predecessors.
