Who We Are
ABOUT THE GALLERY
White Box is a community art gallery space for selected artists to show their work. It is intended as a focus of interest for the people of Blackheath and for the wider world of art enthusiasts. We select a broad spectrum of art practices, something different from exhibition to exhibition, by committed artists. Prints, sculpture, painting, ceramics, performance and photographic works have all been hosted at White Box. The Gallery is run by Frances and Graham High who are themselves practising artists.

WHAT'S ON NOW
Peter and Gunvor Edwards
A retrospective of these much loved illustrators
Saturday 7th August to Sunday 15th August
open two weekends only 11.00 am to 6.00 pm
Peter Edwards & his Swedish wife Gunvor, aka ‘Troll’, met at art school in the early fifties and had long and successful careers as illustrators and in Peter’s case, as an exhibition designer. If you don’t know their names, you may well have encountered their work in Puffin books and the Puffin Post; in educational books; or the BBC television series Jackanory. You may be familiar with their work in the early train books by Reverend Awdry, or with murals made by Peter at the Commonwealth Institute and South Kensington Museums. The couple lived with their six children at 5 Dartmouth Terrace, in Blackheath, and then half way up Maze Hill, Greenwich, between 1968 and 1985. This tiny retrospective showcases a small slice of the artwork and illustrations they made over a period of sixty years. It is a bonsai celebration of their energetic working lives and their long and loving friendship.
