Coming Exhibitions

Andy English - Printmaker

Specialising in the delicate art of engraving onto endgrain woodblocks through a lens and printing using Victorian handpresses. Andy's personal work reflects a love of gardens and wildlife, often set in local Fenland landscapes with Ely cathedral as a silhouette familiar to him since childhood. His book illustrations include Philip Pullman, Susan Hill and Keats and his work features in The V&A and British Library collections.

Lindsay Stemp - Pencil drawings and acrylics

"There are at least 600 Anglican Churches in each of the diocese of Ely, Peterborough, Norwich and St Edmundsbury. I have chosen a few based on places that we visit as a family with many dating back to the Middle Ages and which resonate with history and our national culture. All pieces show the churches ‘in their setting’."
