Mixed Winter Show

at cambridge contemporary art 

3 - 24 December 2018

It's that time of year again when both galleries are full of beautiful works of art, handmade Christmas decorations and cards. For your convenience both galleries will be open until 6pm Mon-Sat in December.

Please join us for a spot of shopping and Christmas cheer on Wednesday 12th December, 6-8 pm.  Local cheesemonger Hum-Closen will be here with a selection of delicious hand made cheese to enjoy (with a glass of wine) while you browse the unique selection of artworks on display. We will also be giving away free tote bags with our exclusive designs on them.

Every year during our mixed winter show we like to introduce new artists to the gallery. Ceramicists Hilary Mayo and Adam Frew will be familiar names to followers of British Studio Ceramics. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to show their wonderful work in Cambridge.

After a sold out summer show, we are extremely excited to show new paintings by Lesley Seeger. Inspired by the natural world she works en plein air and completes work in the studio. Working on up to seven paintings at a time, each body of work includes both landscapes and semi abstract florals whose styles and methods  inform and compliment each other. She is to be found, most of the time in the middle of a field with a wheelbarrow full of paints and canvases!

We also have some beautiful new paintings by Lyz GardnerRuth TaylorSally Anne Fitter, Laura Beardsell-MooreRebecca BarnardDonald McCleodNicola HartHelen Millar and Paula Sharples amongst many others. All paintings are uniquely crafted originals and by artists based in the UK. 

The Winter Show is a great opportunity to find that unique gift for a loved one at Christmas. New arrivals from popular artists Jane CrispGwen VaughanHelen MartinoJuliet McCleodRhian MalinVivienne Ross plus many more will make the perfect present for under the Christmas tree!

If you would like to be the first to receive information about one of the artists in one of the exhibitions below, contact us and we’ll be in touch when the new work arrives.
