On a blustery day in September a quick peek into the Turner Contemporary gallery and the first thing you see is 'Place, Space and Who'. A show by Barbara Walker of five large portrait drawings of African women who have settled in Margate dominate the entrance hall. Good to see work done by hand and eye rather than a concept rendered by technology, I think drawing remains a very powerful and intimate medium, more so than photography, well at least digital.
