A new exhibition ‘Cambridge Envisaged’ will open at the Michaelhouse Centre, Cambridge on Monday 7th November 2016. 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 exhibition runs from 8am Monday 7th November until 5pm Saturday 19th November in the Michaelhouse Cafe, Trinity Street, Cambridge CB2 1SU. Phone 01223 309167
Admission is free and the centre is open daily from 8am to 5pm, except Sundays.
The art is available for sale.
