Previous Art exhibitions:

Cambridge Envisaged – Mon 7th – Sat 19th November

Featuring stunning works by Peter Corr, Paul Janssens and Caroline Forward, this exhibition showcases diverse perspectives on Cambridge, its architecture, history and its street life.

Peter Corr says about his series of richly textured and glazed abstract paintings: “I wanted to reflect something of the spirit of thinking, order, imagination, reason and invention that permeates the fabric of this special city.”

Paul Janssen’s multi-layered paintings capture the movement that is ever present in the city and market, and portray a sense of authenticity, change and history through his use of wood, old maps, postcards, and found materials from the market to build up the vibrant complexity of his paintings.

Caroline Forward’s oil paintings explore the interplay of stained glass colour and light with stonework and architecture, capturing the stillness and monumentality of historic architecture.

The result of this collaboration, the first time these 3 artists have exhibited together, is a rich, colourful, energetic and contemporary take on this historic city. The art is available for sale.
