Invasion of the Wavelets
Guernsey, United Kingdom
Market Buildings, St Peter Port
Seventeen original artworks were on show from Charlie’s and her husband Magnus’s children’s book, The Invasion of the Wavelets. A short film of a shadow play created by local children during a series of workshops with the artist was also shown. The book, which was released as part of the exhibition, is an original folk tale based on the stories and traditions from Marie de Garis’s Folklore of Guernsey. The Invasion of the Wavelets follows a young Guernsey boy, Jem, as he battles to save the island and the girl he loves, Marie, from a Merfolk invasion.

We look forward to continuing our support.”
